    I removed the steering column cover and unplugged the ignition wires from the switch and can remove the key that way. Could it be the solonoid inside the switch?

    There is a plastic ring around the shifter release button that is broken. I slide the ring out and the key works fine now. Ford has a safety bulletin on it.

There was a recall for this. The transmission shift lever assembly has to be changed out.

Changed the battery and it set off the alarm. it seams like it activated a kill switch of some kind. is there a way to reset it?

You probably had your alarm set when you took out the old one. Just unlock your doors with your key fob, then disconnect the battery again for a few minutes and let it reset with the alarm off.

How can iReset key code grand cherokee 2001 4.7 lt car was jumped started and now a key shows on dash but it wont start

All of the suggestions are great. Resetting the computer by disconnecting the battery should work. If it doesn't, you may need the antenna that fits around the ignition key slot replaced. This item sends a signal to the chip in the key and receives its "resonance" to identify the key as being valid. If this antenna is burned out, the computer can't read the key.
If you want to reset the security system (if so equipped) look here:

Need help with spark issue

Hello, I usually stick to Ford brands, but if you were on the Roadside, I would pull over to see what was wrong. First, I would try a small amount of starting fluid to see if there was spark. The engine would either hit or run until the starting fluid was used up.

If the engine did nothing, that would lead me to believe it is a spark issue. Not being familiar with your brand, I would look in the Owners' Manual for mention of an Ignition Relay, PCM Relay or Anti-theft device. I would also read up on any Impact or Collision sensor that may disable the engine. Ford brands interrupt the fuel flow but your Brand may kill the engine.

Try a different Ignition key in case the computer chip broke in your key. Disconnect the Negative Battery cable and hope the brain resets to get you home.

If you can get to Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance, they can scan your vehicle and perhaps pick up the cause of your problem if you did not disconnect the Battery. You may have to call for a Tow truck(USUALLY A FORD BRAND) and get towed to a repair shop.

Ignition will not shut off to remove key unless battery is disconnected. 1992 Honda Accord LX

You have either a bad ignition switch or the actual tumbler (key slot) is worn out. Or, see if you can get the key out when you put it in NEUTRAL (with the Parking Brake on). If this lets the key out then the problem is within your Interlock Control system.

Key wont start engine

is the starter turning?then it is a fuel or ignition problem.if there is no starter action,it could be the safety neutral switch,put it in neutral and see if it turns over.,or a dead or defective battery or connection.also,the car has an immobilizer that kills the starter.
if the key is a copy with no chip,the car will not start

Fob wont work the locks

I have done this procedure for my peugeot 307, but you can give it a try for your Pug expert and let me know if it works.
Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes then after connecting the battery perform the following steps
1. Turn the Ignition switch to the ON position using your key.
2. Press the LOCK button for 10 seconds. It will set your ECU in programming mode.
3. Remove the key and wait for 10 seconds.
4. Press the buttons on the key repetedly for operation (lock und unlock doors) to synchronise the key signals.
5. Again turn the ignition on and start the engine.
6. Turn the ignition OFF

If fails in step 4, then disconnect the battery and reconnect it and wait about 10 minutes to check the remote. Some new ecu units synchronises itselfs if you disconnect the battery while in programiing mode.
