The ignition key cylinder and ignition switch are two different parts. Which one did you change? Your problem is the ignition switch not the key cylinder if that's what you changed.

Fans wont shut off when ignition is off 99 prelude

Some cars are designed to allow the fans to run even with the key off until the engine and radiator cool down. If it continues to run after 19-15 minutes you may have a sticking fan relay, usually located in the fuse box in the engine compartment, just replace it and it should take care of your problem

94 Acura Legend. Been having problems with ignition sometimes not working unless I hold key in right position manually. Im thinking and hoping ignition module but not sure and how to change that.

if you have to hold the key in a certain position for it to work then the ignition switch electrical portion has a worn section and needs should pick up a repair book for your car so you can see and read how to replace the switch and what tools you will need.

I have had this problem on two separate honda accords. Can you keep the engine running if you turn the key to start and then let the key come back just a little? I have had two faulty switches. I could keep the engine running but I had to hold the key between run and start position.

Hi i own a 1991 Honda prelude, automatic. I'm having problems with the ignition. The key goes in by wont turn, unless i jiggle it around. Any advice would be great thanks?

Get another key made, sounds like your key is either a new cut that is slightly out of alignment or it is an old key that is worn. If that doesn't fix it then you may need a new ignition column (tumbler). Try your key(s) on your door locks and your trunk lock to see if the same problem exists.

94 isuzu trooper turn key fuel pump runs for 2sec.and shuts off?

Can you hear a click during that 2 secounds? Thats the relay shutting off the pump just what its suppost to do. The pump does not run contenuosly, if it did it would burn up, thats what the relay is for, it kicks on and off to maintain the correct pressure to engine as needed. It will not turn back on until it resets itself because engine was not running, thats the way there designed.

93 prelude starting problems

I had a similar problem on my 93 Prelude. Apparently the original ignition module has a high plastic content. This doesnt do well with heat obviously. I had the ignition replaced with an aftemarket part that did not use as much plastic in its pieces and it fixed the problem.
