Tip & How-To about Bentley Continental

Emergency Car light.

I have tried this and it does work, take a piece of graphite from a lead pencil, attach 2 wires from your car battery and have a temp light on your hands that will burn for about 2 minutes. Make the lead pieces about an inch long, one end hot and the other end neg. use a piece of speaker wire in an emergency. Or keep a piece of wire rolled up with pencil leads and alligator clips stuffed in the glove box.

I put my car in park, but cannot turn key all way to left and cannot remove key. Is WD40 ok to use there? Any solutions to solve this problem? I can't get key out. Help please

What year/make/model car is it? Where is the shifter located, basically? It may not be the tumbler. The lock itself may be due to the steering wheel. It happens sometimes. Is the steering wheel locked into position, or can you still turn it? If it is too locked, try to unlock the wheel, by taking shifter out of park and back in, then try turning the steering wheel until it unlocks. When it does, the key should turn. I can give a better answer if I knew what car we're working with.

key will not turn in ignition

1. Make sure it's the right key
2. Try gently pulling the key out a bit and putting back in before trying
3. Try drawing on key with a pencil, yes, a pencil. The graphite will unstick a sticky lock.
