You would have to remove the ignition if you want to know how i will tell you but it would be much easier to take out the passengers door lock and take it to a locksmith and have them make you a key for about $10 to $15 dollars

How to start a Ford Contour with out my key


Probably can't be done if it is late enough to be fitted with a security system. In that case the key will have a coded transponder which the system will recognise and send a signal the the engine management to switch it on.

You either need a correctly coded key or remove the engine ECU and have it decoded.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

Ignition locked on a 2000 Dodge intrepid


If you any other spare key, try with that key and see if it turns the ignition to unlock position.Try to turn the steering wheel to left and key to right side and try turning key to left an steering wheel to right side, try both ways and see if the key unlocks ignition.If that is not helping then try to wiggle the steering wheel and then insert key to unlock ignition.If that is also not helping then get wd-40 spray and spray the lubricant into key hole, and then let the spray remain there for few minutes then insert key in the key hole and see if it unlocks the ignition.------ If not then its problem with tumblers in the ignition switch, it has to be checked.For that ignition switch has to be removed and inspected.If ignition switch is inspected ok, then ignition key lock cylinder is faulty, it has to be replaced.Once the ignition switch is removed, the key lock cylinder can be accessed.----------- Getting this troubleshooting tried and this possibilities checked will help, thanks.Helpmech.

Saturn vue ignition key won't turn


It was very likely that the problem turning the key was due to the steering column lock mechanism. Sometimes when you lock the steering wheel, if you the mechanism will bind up, making it difficult to unlock the ignition with the key. Often when this happens, you will be parked on a hill with your wheels agains a curb or some such item. Once you turn the wheel hard to the right (or left), the pressure is released on the locking mechanism, and the key will turn easily. This is a similar situation to what can happen in an automatic if you park on a hill without the parking brake.
try doing this:
pop the off the circle piece around the ignition and the holster cover under the steering wheel.
that ought to work.

97 nissan pickup


bought a 96 nissan last year (2008) and had the same problem for a while. It seemed that it only happened with 1 of the 3 keys i had. my girlfriend sat in a parkinglot for almost 4 hours before someone helped her out although no discovery of what the problem was.

at times the problem was because the wheel was locked and turned too far over. with key in ignition and "turning" it as if your starting the car, give it a nice **** in the opposite direction. this sometimes fixed the problem but was not a solution.

then a friend mentioned that you have to insert the key into the ignition and then you pull it back out JUST A LITTLE BIT, i repeat, A LITTLE BIT. if you do this slowly you should feel it "unlock".
(i dont recall if he mentioned that this was on all cars up to a certain year or just on Nissan's.)

that worked. NOW, WE JUST DONT LOCK THE WHEEL...EVER!!


hope this helps!!
