I had the same problem with my 98 and saw on other sites to bang the key inward with a rubber mallet and then it will turn. We ended up leaving the valet key in the ignition all the time because once it turns and you don't take the key out it won't have the problem! We also left a rubber mallet in there in case someone took the key out by accident!

99 Olds Cutlass, new ignition problems


Obviously the mechanic is not getting down to the real
issue for some reason
Try a different shop
I can only guess but it sounds like you may need
a new ignition switch & then the proper adjustment
if one is required
You may be able to dajust yours to work ok if that
applies.
Seems odd the mechanic spends all that time in one area
& doesn't have a solution
You may have a bad door switch as well

FOB not working on my saturn vue and can't get key in ignition or turn ignition.


That will usually happen when your gear shift is not fully in park. Start by checking that to make sure.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My key turns in ignition but doesn't seem to engage, no lights come on either


Sounds to me like you have a broken linkage from your ignition tumbler to your ignition switch. It is a plastic "arm" that pushs.pulls a metal tab on your ignition switch.

Second Chip key for 2005 Aveo won't work


assuming the 2005 model year stil uses viper security systems...the chip in the key carries a magnetic resistance frequency. if the chip is damaged or corroded the frequency will change and wont engage the igntion. you can either get another key made (about 75 dollars) or bypass the ignition lockout feature.

98 chevy cavalier turns over but won't start


i know industry jargon can be confusing, but lets try this. if it turns over but won't start, it could be your ''ignition module'' that sits on top of the vave cover on the motor or it might be the fuel pump or filter. make sure when you crank the engine that the key is all the way turned or it may not always make a proper contact to activate the ignition module. iv'e seen this before & had to change the ignition switch & all worked ok after that. i would need to know engine lt size to give you more details on the matter. please get back to me.

I have a 2003 hyundai sonata and i dont have the remote for the stock alarm. My alarm keeps going off and my car wont start. I bought a new battery and even tried the key in the door still no luck.....


The 2003 Sonata is equipped with a 'starter KILL' burglar alarm system with disables the starting system (using a N/C 'contacts' configuration instead of a N/O contacts configuration). N/C=Normally closed, and N/O=Normally open contacts. When the alarm goes off with a MY Sonata, the only way to DISARM it is with the key fob (remote) originally programmed for it (unless you purchase a new remote & have it programmed for the vehicle at an authorized Hyundai Service Department). NOTE: So long as the keyless entry & burglar alarm system is functioning/operating normally, the alarm will keep going off and the STARTER KILL function will still prevent you from starting the vehicle. One option is left without purchasing a new remote and having it programmed.
1. When the alarm goes off, get into the vehicle and insert the ignition key into the ignition.
2. Turn the key to the 'RUN' position (NOT the ACC position) and wait for the alarm to STOP (usually about 3 to 5 minutes).
3. The engine should then start using the ignition key.

If this procedure doesn't work, the problem will need further diagnosis by a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician.

Hope this helps

Ignition locked. Key won't turn.


Hi,
Yes when you replaced the batteries in the FOB this will have cleared the system identification for the keys.
So have these reset to your vehicle and then you will have no problems.

disconnect the ground cable only on the batter for two minutes, be sure the key is not in the ignition, reconnect cable, turn key to on, then turn off. remove the key, reinsert it and crank the car .
