Do you have the type key with a 'chip' in it? Depending on the make, they can cost in the range of $400. If it's a regular key (hopefully) bring the cars vin and proof of ownership (registration or title) to a dealer, they can make up a key for you for a reasonable charge (I have heard of dealers on occasion doing it for free).

Radio-code of model no.mr563520


Hi, You need to take your registration papers with your licence (licence is to prove YOU own the car) to a car dealer ie: Holden, Ford, Toyota, Chrysler and ask at the sales office for the RADIO SECURITY PIN NUMBER, You'll receive your BCM security number, Car key number-Ignition, Radio security pin number and Radio serial number. These numbers belong to that car and once you have them DON'T loose them because in Australia some dealers charge a fee and some don't.... Hope this helped....CHEERS..

'94 GMC truck ignition stuck


Hi Jane, Your problem may be being caused by the bent key, but you may need to replace the ignition barrel and switch as it too may be defective. The barrel takes the key and at the working end (opposite side to where the key fits) is a rod which fits into the switch which turns the ignition on and off and operates the starter. I'm suspecting that it is either loose (the attachment screw may have become loose) worn or broken. Regards John

Can't put key into ignition


Hello: It sounds like the tumblers came loose in the ignition lock cylinder. You will need to replace the lock cylinder and possibly the key to. A worn key is hard on the lock cylinder.

I have an R reg Hyundi accent MVI Coupe and suffering serious stress. sometimes it starts sometimes it doesnt. When I put key in ignition and turn it ....nothing happens. it almost appears as if their is...


I have the same model and year Coupe, and have problems starting it sometimes. I'm not sure it's the same problem you're having, as you say nothing happens when you turn the ignition key. On mine the engine turns over but doesn't start. It usually happens if I've been driving, stopped and then tried to drive off again.
In my case it's the ignition lead - to get it going I have to pop the bonnet/hood, pull apart the plugs that connect the two halves of the ignition lead together, then reconnect them.
I'm guessing the plugs are just slightly loose and/or the contacts need cleaning (haven't gotten around to sorting it properly yet). Loose plugs would explain why it's okay until after I've been driving; presumably the plugs get shaken loose during the drive.

Might not be the same problem on yours but it might give you somewhere to start.
Hope it's of some help!
