1989 key turns very hard and wont start many times


sounds like the ignition switch is worn out and needs replacing. the key may be worn to the point it needs replacing. if you have another key that is in good shape try it. if you have the same problem then the ignition switch is worn out and needs replacing along with a new keys.

1998 vw beetle wont start when turn key but bump start works but doesnt want to stay running\


This sounds like the anti theft system is active, you jump start it but it dies out after a few seconds , if this is correct then try another key. the other thing can be a weak battery make sure the battery is fully charged and good,

I have a 2003 jeep libierty .. the key is placed in ignition but wont start the car,, the string wheel is hard to move back and forth it is stuck .. the key dosen't start the jeep .. i was stuck for 2hr...


I may be misreading your post but, it sounds like the steering lock is preventing you from turning the key... sometimes you have to put some force to turn the wheel. It wouldn't hurt either to apply a little bit of lubricant in to the key cylinder. If you are able to turn the key to the start position and it still doesn't start, there is a good chance your battery or starter might be dead. Hope this helps!

Key wont turn to start car, and sometimes key can not be removed


There is a cable driven collar on the steering column. But first, make sure if your wheels are cut all the way to one side, pull the wheel forcefully in the same direction as the wheels are turned and at the same time try to remove the key. If this fails turn the collar just below the keyswitch around the column counterclockwise only and try to turn and lock the key then.

Ford contour wont start battery charged lights working


If headlight do not come on, leave them on and start check ground and power.
If headlights do come on then locate the starter and fine something to tape on it, not too hard,
but before u can do this have someone set inside the car with the key turn in the start position...

check fuel pressure with a gauge,turn the key in the on position an read pressure ,if pressure goes lets say to 40 or 50 on one key cycle pump is prob. good . if it takes 3 to 4 key cycles to achieve this pressure ,pump is bad or connection in tank is bleeding off over night.
