    My key won't turn in the ignition. I got it running once by playing with the wheel and the steering column. I drove home turned the car off and re-started it. It started fine. Came out in the morning to go to work and again the iginition was locked up tighter than a drum.

2003 honda accord/ key wont turn,steering wheel is locked


To fix your problem, you have to turn the steering wheel either to the left or right as much as you can, then try to turn the key in the ignition. When the steering wheel locks, the key won't turn. By manually holding the steering wheel out of the lock position, the key will turn again and you're steering column will be back to normal.

Cannot turn key in ignition to start car


Hi nicoleelgert, i suspect the steering lock is giving you the problem, all you need to do is turn the steering wheel left and right ( jiggle ) while turning the key in the ignition, it won't move much because it's locked but it will be enough to release the steering lock and allow you to turn key.. make sure you have the shifter in Park position too. Good luck . OK

hi,it maybe a good idea to remove the steering collum covers to visually inspect it can be the ignition bolt just being loose or the steering lock or ignition it self is on its way out.
