Question about 2008 Volkswagen Eos

1 Answer

When I put the key to my VW Eos into the ignition, it will not turn over. The key stops turning pretty much immediatly after I try to turn the car on. I'm not sure what this means. What is wrong, and what can I do?

Make sure your steering wheel is not locked.. if it is, put the key in the ignition then turn the steering wheel and turn the key at the same time.. it unlocks the wheel

Can't put key in the ignition


try moving your steering wheel back and forth while trying key. I don't see how you could move the steering column, its usually bolted in very tight. If you can move your steering column, it needs tightened up immediatly!

Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

----------

Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

---------

But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

Car immobilisor


you might be able to reprogram the key, but you can only do this if you have two keys, what you need to do is put one key in the ignition turn the ignition on ( not over ) put the key that needs reprogramming into the drivers door and lock the vehicle with the key not the button, wait 10 seconds, remove the key, then press the unlock on the fobb, turn ignition off, remove key from ignition, put in the key that you just unlocked the car with and turn ignition do not turn over, turn off ignition,remove key wait 10 seconds, then put key back in then you should be able to turn it over as normal, if that does not work you will have to take key to be reprogramed at the main dealer...hope this helps

98 K1500 starts then turns off immediatly


Per your description, it sounds like you change the lock cylinder. That cylinder has a specific code associated with it. When you insert the key, the code is sent to the security system to verify it is the correct key and cylinder.
You will have to relearn the system to accept the new cylinder.
Insert the key and turn it to the run position. Leave the key on for 10 minutes, turn off the ignition and repeat 2 more cycles of 10 minutes each. This will relearn the new security code and you should be OK at that point.
Good luck and let me know.

98 VW jetta: key wont turn in hole


Get some graphite or lock oil and put it into the ignition.This should help alot,Also if you try to turn the steering wheel while turning the key it will releave the pressure on the wheel lock and this helps as well (when the wheel is locked, you should only be able to move it a little bit in one direction)

Put the Key in the ignition and turn the key. It should disengage the steering lock and you should be able to pull it out. Make sure you unplug the switch from the back.
