    you sir have no idea what you are talking about. the ignitions on honda/acura cars dont have chips until later on. and he was asking if anyone knew the color for the starter and ignition on wires. and any car can be hot wired given the right information and right parts. you can easily bypass the ignition to start the car. it is keeping the steering wheel from locking that would be the issue.

Lost only key to ignition switch want to know if it can be bypassed to get car home?


You will have to get a duplicate key from the dealer or have a locksmith make a key. If you attempt to bypass the ignition switch you will trigger the anti-theft function in the ECM and disable the vehicle. ALWAYS KEEP A SPARE KEY TO AVOID EXPENSIVE LOCKOUTS

The key wont come out of ignition


It sounds like one or more pins in the lock tumbler portion of your ignition switch has slipped out of position and jammed the cylinder so that you can't remove your key. These pins, which are actually shaped more like thin washers, are made of soft brass and gradually wear over time. Especially if you or another driver of the car had your ignition key on a keychain with a bunch of other keys, the weight of that key ring will also push and pull on these pins over time, increasing the odds that one of them will go out of alignment and cause this kind of a problem. That's why you'll see car enthusiasts have a single ignition key on a keychain or have it be detachable from the rest of their keys--it saves a lot of wear and tear on the ignition switch.


To fix this problem, you'll need to remove the lock tumbler portion of the ignition switch and take it to a locksmith to have it rebuilt. A locksmith will take out the old washers and springs and replace them with exact new replacements. Assuming the lock tumbler isn't cracked (they almost never are), you'll end up with a switch that works like new. This process is also usually much cheaper than ordering a new ignition switch, and it also re-uses your existing keys. Of course, a locksmith can also replace the washers in a brand new ignition switch to match your existing keys.


Removing the lock cylinder could be a bit of a problem if you can't wiggle the ignition switch at all. However, don't try to force the cylinder back into the "off and take the key out" position if the switch is otherwise rotating freely. If you take the key out at this point, there's a good chance you'll never get it back in again. On GM cars of this vintage, there's usually a little hole somewhere on the bottom of the ignition switch. Normally, you push up into this hole with a very stiff wire while turning the key to the "on" position. This will release the lock tumbler, and you'll be able to pull it out of the steering column. Note that this only pulls out the lock tumbler; the actual ignition switch will still be left in place, permitting you to start the car with, say, a screwdriver instead of a key.


It doesn't sound like you have this problem, but you may have trouble pulling the lock cylinder if you can't rotate it enough to use the proper tumbler removal procedure. If that's the case, the best thing to do might be to call in a locksmith to do this for you. It will cost you a bit more for them to work on your car instead of just on your tumbler, but they have additional experience that helps them know how much force they can apply to a stubborn lock without, say, bending or breaking off the key (and even more expensive scenario for you). Plus, if they screw up, they get to buy you a new ignition switch, so that expense isn't coming out of your pocket. If you can still start your car, you can save locksmith house call charges by driving to their place of business and parking in front of their store. I have had to do that, and I saved $75 in locksmith charges off the bat by driving my car to the guy's shop instead of having him come out to me.


Good luck!

The security light is on and wont start can i get and ignition switch with a key from a junk yard to start my car


The key has a radio transmitter in it that tells the computer it is the right key and also that a key is present, so that your car can't be hot wired. Replacing the switch won't solve anything since the key code is stored in the computer. The dealer can make new keys and program them to your car. Some locksmiths can do this to. Expect to pay around $150 to have a new key programmed to the vehicle. This is if you are lucky and it is the chip in the key that failed and not the transmitting system or computer.

The key to the ignition with the chip need to be replace but how and where do i go to get a new key and can the old key be reprogram?


Don't go to the dealer, cause they are way expensive.  Call a couple of local locksmith shops to find the cheapest price.  Also, look on e-bay for the key and chip to save money and then all you gotta do is pay for the labor to have the locksmith program the thing for you.

Lost key for 1993 ford tempo


The best thing you can do is to probably make him work a few odd jobs to start paying you back for the $75 it's probably going to cost to have a locksmith come out to re-key the ignition cylinder. Without the original key, you can't even remove the old ignition cylinder to replace it with an aftermarket one, so a locksmith is probably the best way to go. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that's about all you can do at this point, shy of replacing the entire steering column, or trying to break the existing cylinder so that you can replace it with a new one. Hope this has proven useful. Try to have yourself a nice evening!

Oh yeah...don't be too hard on him. I lost the keys to my '85 Nissan 300ZX Turbo 3 times before I finally learned my lesson. Kids will be kids...but I'd still make him pay for it...lol.
