Question about 2007 Honda Accord Sedan

1 Answer

Keys/ignition My daughter was driving my car and I believe put the key in the ignition incorrectly. The car will start and do everything it normally does but the key will not come out of the ignition. The wheels are turned correctly, we are not parked on a hill, and I've checked the manual but I don't see anything that pertains to the key sticking. Earlie C

Ok, a couple of questions: 1. how long have u owned the car?
2. has this ever happened before, but the key came out eventually?
3. Has it ever felt like it was sticking when removing?
Here are a few ideas, When the key is in the off position, are u pushing the key in towards the steering column, while trying to turn it further to the off position (counter clock wise as u face the ignition slot and key)?
Try spraying a lubricant (wd-40 is excellent) around the key, into the ignition switch (u won't harm it)
Wiggle the key around, and spray several times, this just might work.
If all this fails, I'm afraid something came loose inside the switch, (unusual due to the car being an 07 and a Honda) which is preventing removal of the key. Please let me know how u make out Good luck countrycurt0

How would you get your ignition to turn the engine over without a key?

If the ignition key is damaged or the lock cylinder is damaged and you can't get the key in ignition lock...start there. Is the key broken off in the ignition? Please provide some more information as the description of your problem doesn't make much sense.

Dealer gave me a shaved key works on starting ignition not on door lock the other three keys work on everything car doesn't have engine immoboliser removed the remote keyless entry fobs what is

Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

Anti theft is on. Car won't start with key in. Have open each door starting with rear hatch. lights and everything else is working

there is a chance that the microchip inside the key is damaged,, or the vehicles security system does not identify the key anymore. there is a few things that you can try to see if you can get it to remember the key --- this process is called key flipping ( NOTE: you will need the two original keys that came with the vehicle to do this -- NO COPIES ).( while doing the 'flip' - make sure the keys are never close to eachother,, put one of the keys on the passenger seat ),, take one of the keys and put it in the ignition switch and turn to ON position, wait about 15 seconds,, turn to OFF and remove the key -- now take the other key and put that one in the ignition and turn to ON,, wait about 15 seconds,, turn to OFF and remove,, now take the 1st key and put that back into the ignition switch and turn to ON and see if in a few seconds the ' theft ' light goes out -- if it does then the vehicle should start,, if it does not then repeat the whole flip process one more time. IF it still does not work then you will have to have a automotive locksmith come out to the vehicle and reprogram the keys to the vehicles computer. this will be a service call and a couple bucks for the programing. but if you only have one key then you will need to also buy a second key from the locksmith because you NEED two keys to program the computer.

Yes If You Have To Many Keys On Your Key Ring Your Ignition Can Go Bad Fairly Quick. A Normal Sign Of Your Ignition Going Bad Is Shutting Off While Driving. You May Want To Try Changing Your Ignition Yourself As It Is Extremely Expensive To Have A Dealer Match The Keys And Everything. But If You Don't Wanna Deal With Having A Different Door Key Then The Ignition Key Then Pay The Extra Money.

Anti-theft problem?

it sounds like the ignition cylinder has worn, when you try to stick anything into the ignition besides the key it respond by freezing the system. due to the cylinder being worn the key does not fit correctly, then the ignition picks up on this and tells the car it's being stolen.replace the ignition cylinder(lock and tumbler) and it should be fine. this usually happens when the keys are too heavy and causes the key to pull downward and dent the cylinder

If the light has not stop blinking when you wait ten minutes then it is not going to crank. My does it a lot but after 10 minutes the light has stopped blinking. I think that the ignition switch needs replacing or maybe just the key is worn out. I think when anybody goes to fix this GM problem it is a guessing game.
