Why my key want turn for 300 chrysler 300


If the key won\'t turn it suggests the steering wheel is pressing hard on the stop that locks it. Try twisting the steering wheel left and right while attempting to turn the key. That happened to me once when I parked on a hill and turned the wheels so it would bump the curb and not roll away. I had to jerk the steering wheel pretty hard before it let go. If that doesn\'t fix it you may have a real problem inside the switch where something came loose and is blocking the switch from turning. I sure hope jerking the wheel with fix this for you.

Bmw e60 523i 2005 is not turning the key to on the car


is the steering locked if it is you need to rotate the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key to release the lock, if the steering is turned all the way then try turning the steering wheel right while wiggling the key in the ignition to release the lock, if the steering wheel is free then get some graphite from an auto parts store and put it on the key and insert it into the ignition to get it lubricated

I was given a 1984 Chevrolet pick-up(54,000 miles. needs freeze plug) from my Uncle with a key half broken in the ignition. I don't have the other part of key. I need to remove the key tumbler so


You will need a trip to the your local parts store. You should be able to buy a brand new lock cylinder for about 15-20 dollars. Tools needed will be a socket set, steering wheel puller, phillips screwdriver, and a set of torques bits and driver. If you pull the steering wheel and unscrew the hazard knob and turn signal arm, then unscrew the turn signal switch you will be able to remove the mounting screw that holds the lock cylinder into the coulmn. install new cylinder and now you have a new key for the truck.

My Chevy Cobalt just worked like an hour ago, and now I can put the key into the ignition, but the key won't turn. The steering wheel is locked, it is stuck in park, the wheels are almost straight, and...


Hi, what you need to do is put the key in the ignition then grab hold of the steering wheel then whilst trying to turn the key you need to turn the steering wheel to the left or right it may be a bit stiff but once its moved it should free the lock, so try turning the wheel to the left and right as hard as you can whilst turning the key doing this should free the steering lock and get it started.

also try putting the key in the ignition the other way round and then give it a try.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

NO I HAVE A LX470 WHEN I PUT THE KEY IN IT TURNS ALL THE WAY OVER WITHOUT MAKING CONTACT.INSIDE THE IGNITION CASING BEHIND THE SWITCH,THE LINKAGE SEEM TO BE BROKEN.How do i repair this problem?


The ignition crank shaft is broken inside the Steering Column Lock Assy. You will need to buy a new assy (cost appr. $202.21) and 2 steering lock bolts (cost appr. $4.96 ea) at a Toyota or Lexus dealer. Call either dealer for best price and availability. To replace you'll need to remove the black snap-on panel below speedometer then remove the screws securing the driver side dash. Behind the dash is a steel plate. Remove that and remove the steering column covers by turning the steering wheel to access the screws. You'll see that the SCLA is secured by 2 break-away bolt (this is an anti-theft feature). Use a dremel tool with cutting disc to make a notch in the screw head to remove with a flathead screwdriver. If this doesn't work your other option is to cut the bolts where the assy bolts together. Remove the broken SCLA and remove the key FOB and install into new SCLA. If your mechanically incline this should take about 2-3 hrs. and save you $300-400 in labor cost.

INFINITII 35 Steering Column Wont release


Are you sure the steering wheel isn't putting pressure on the steering lock release mechanism? Pull the wheel slightly to the left and right while trying to turn on the ignition.
