Question about 1990 Acura Integra Hatchback

1 Answer

Ignition key will not release from steering column

I have a 1990 honda integra xsi. when i turn the car off, it is difficult to remove the key. i must wait a few minutes and then it will turn fully to the off position & then can be removed. also the car will lock itself in "park". it takes a key to be inserted into the slot next to the shifter and a button pressed to move the shift lever.

Please explain why these two things happen.

The manual is in Japanese.

To install:
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the housing with the key in the cylinder.
  2. While gently turning the key side-to-side, press the cylinder in to the stop. It should click into place.

How to remove my key lock 2000dodge caravan


Ignition Lock Cylinder - Removal & Installation CAUTION The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the air bag or SIR wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. In order to disarm the air bag system, allow the SIR system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures.
  3. Remove the screws that secure the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
  4. Remove the screws that secure the bottom of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
  5. Disengage the retaining clip that holds the right side of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
  6. Remove the lower steering column cover from the vehicle.
  7. Remove the mounting screws that hold the upper and lower steering column shrouds and remove the lower steering column shroud.
  8. Install the ignition key and turn the key cylinder to the RUN position. This is important because it will not only aid in removal of the ignition lock, but will also place the socket (in the lock cylinder housing) in proper alignment for the installation of the replacement ignition lock.
  9. Press in the lock cylinder retaining tab and remove the key cylinder (ignition lock).

    Fig. Depress the retaining tab to remove the key cylinder
To install:
  1. Install the ignition key into the replacement ignition lock key cylinder. Turn the key to the RUN position. Depress the ignition lock key cylinder retaining tab.
  2. Align the shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder with the socket in the end of the ignition lock cylinder housing.
  3. Align the ignition lock cylinder with the grooves in the lock cylinder housing. Push the ignition lock cylinder into the housing until the retaining tab sticks through the opening in the lock cylinder housing.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position and remove the key.
  5. Install the lower steering column shroud and install the mounting screws.
  6. Place the lower steering column cover into correct position on the lower instrument panel and engage the clip that secures the right side of the cover to the instrument panel.
  7. Install the lower steering column mounting screws.
  8. Install the mounting screws that hold the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
  9. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

1990 chevy suburban. The key was turned to auxillary and stuck


hopefully that does not have tilt steering which makes the job somewhat more difficult. the same thing happened with a van i owned. there are small arms inside the steering column that move with the key to move the ignition switch.
to confirm it is broken locate the ignition switch on the column. remove it then turn the key. if the piece that normally moves that switch doesn't... than it is broken.

first unhook the battery.

about the only way to get at it is to remove the steering wheel. there are more parts behind that that have to be removed. then you will get to what is basically and end cap. remove that and slide out the parts and install the new arm(s) mine was a 2 piece.

basically you just need to bolt it back up and reinstall the key cylinder and you are good to go. hook up the battery again and you should have a working vehicle.
the tilt springs can be held together with a c clamp. it is tricky but you will see as you attempt it.

If your Ford Focus is not starting, and you know the battery and alternator are good, the problem could lie in the ignition system. The ignition switch is a whole cylinder inserted into the steering column that connects to the starter motor. When you change an ignition switch, you are also replacing the key.

  1. Remove the dashboard panel below the steering column in your car; it should be screwed in place. Remove the steering column's upper cover by releasing its clips with a flat-head screwdriver.
  2. Look for the audio control switch---a small device sticking out of the steering column that acts like a remote control. If one exists, release the switch's plastic locking tang with the screwdriver, and unplug the electrical connector to remove the switch.
  3. Loosen the steering column by releasing the locking lever, and remove the steering column's lower cover by pulling out the screws with the screwdriver.
  4. Use your ignition key to turn the switch to the left---the position that would activate the accessories but not start the car. Insert the screwdriver into the hole in the top of the cylinder to depress the detent spring, and pull out the cylinder with the key inside.
  5. Insert the new key into the new ignition switch, and line up the switch inside the steering column so it's in the same place the old switch was in when you removed it. Make sure the detent locks into place; then turn the switch so it's in the "Off" position.
  6. Replace all the covers and panels you removed to access the cylinder, along with the audio control switch, if applicable, in reverse order of

Things You'll Need:
  • Small flat-head screwdriver
  • Ignition switch and key

Tips & Warnings
  • Older Ford Focus models may have a different method of removing and changing the ignition switch. Check an automotive guide for your particular year and model.
  • Always disconnect the negative (black) battery cable before working on the ignition or any other electrical component of your car.

I hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Remove panel under steering wheel. Put key in cylinder and turn back to accessory position. Looking under lower part of steering column locate a small pin under the key cylinder. While depressing the pin turn the key backwards and pull the entire cylinder with key out of column. Good luck.
