Hi Arnold
Sounds like you require a new steering lock.
Not a lot you can do with faulty ones I am afraid.

Good Luck !
John.

    Hi Arnold.



    You can try a little squirt of oil, it´s not recommended in steering locks, but its worth a try if it frees it of !



    Good Luck.

How do i reprogram my key on peugeot 307 hdi 2001


Many cars have a different process to enabling passive systems, some require turn the key on and off 3 times then hold it in the on position while holding down the remote, or you may hear a chirp to start the calibration process, the safest way of course to marry the unit to the vehicle is to scoot down to the Peugeot dealer and get them to do the program, it may cost, but they also have to make sure everything works correctly too, so they will stand by the service they provide you. hope this helps, happy holidays.

Having problems with car bstarting due to something with ignition why


I am not sure if the problem is because the steering wheel is
locked up....if it is turn wheel back and forth while turning key
in ignition. If that is not the problem tap the key while it is in
the ignition and try turning the key....keep your fingers out of
the way....you may have to do this more than once. A small
shot of lubricant never hurts. Good luck.

Regards,
Dennis

Wont start sometimes


GM cars have bad problem with security system. If you key turn light and will start other time will stick and need shaking to turn over and won't start just replace the key. Security system need some times to refresh the memory.
1.turn key ON for 10min.
2.turn key OFF 10sec.
3.turn ON 10min.
4.turn OFF 10sec.
5.turn ON 10min.
turn OFF ON and start
total of 30 min. to refresh the memory
the next step is more expensive and need some skills.
on top of the ignition switch is a sensor go bad
replace ignition switch with the sensor and do the learning process from step 1 to 5

I have a 2002 sunfire... and i have trouble turning it on. Once it startes it is stuck there because it will not turn at all. Once it is in this position the wipes wont work, the windows wont roll down,...


sounds like you need a new ignition, reason nothing works cause once it doese turn over n starts the car the tumbler is stick in the starting position jus not far enough to keep the starter engaged but far enough the it still trying to go trough the start process which cuts the power to everything else till the ignition returns to the on postion

did you try jus turning the ignition far enough to when the starter engages jus let go of it so the car doesnt start and see if everything else still doesnt work if it dont i belive its the igniton

also with out starting it or engaging the starter as in just turning the key on to get power does anything work?

1992 toyota celica key wont turn and alarm system going off


The steering lock may be binding the ignition lock cyl preventing the key from turning or the key may be worn out. Try turning the steering wheel back and forth while wiggling and turning the ignition key. To get the alarm to turn off without starting the car try locking and unlocking the vehicle from the passenger side door. There is a micro switch on the drivers side door lock cyl that may be bad and preventing the alarm from dis arming. This is all providing it is a toyota factory alarm sys.

My car wont start the sercurity like flashes all my lights do come on when i try to start my car but it wont kick over when i try to start my car


If the light is flashing it may be an issue with the passlock sensor.Here is a process you can try to reset the passlock. If this process does not work you may need to replace the ignition tumbler and passlock.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

My Car will not start, the key wont turn at all


THe tumblers in the ignition cylinder are probably worn therefore won't alow you to turn the key. Try inserting the key and jiggle it around while you are trying to start it. Sometimes it will work.
