My key will not turn in the ignition in my rx400h, 2006


Sometimes when the car is parked with the wheels turned to one side, it puts pressure on the key.
Try turning the steering wheel a little more each way, while turning the key, to release the pressure.
Hope this helps.

Why won't my ignition key turn over and my steering wheel is locked in place at the sametime?


I'm assuming you mean your key wont turn in the ignition. first off check to make sure the car is in park. then what you gotta do is put in the key and put a little pressure as if turning but dont turn too hard, then even though the steering wheel is locked you will have to try to move it a little, if you parked with your tires turned then you will want to try to turn the wheel in the same direction, (even locked you should be able to move it about a half inch) you will have to turn the wheel hard but it should move enough to allow the key to turn, you may have to jiggle the key a little in the ignition but it should eventually turn, just remember not to try turning the key too hard, the extra force wont make it go but can cause the key to break. this tends to happen when you turn the car off andthe steering wheel gets locked if the wheels are turned hard in either direction. also if multiple attempts at this still dont work, try taking the key out and turning it over and trying again. Even though both sides of the key are identicle, because of wear on the key and the ignition, sometimes when the wheel locks the ignition, it will only turn if the key is put in a certain way. Hope this helps, good luck

My 2006 PT Cruiser has the same problem! When hot in the cab it won't start but after it is cool outside it starts up without missing a lick! When it is hot and you turn the key you get nothing but do have power to lights, radio, etc. weirdest thing ever and nobody knows why! We have had the ignition module replaced and have a new battery. This one has stumped everyone. Any suggestions folks?

I have a 1998 Mercury Topaz that starts to miss under acceleration and can hardly make 100k per hour. Ignition system is ok. The problem seems to be in the fuel system. New fuel filter installed and...


Even tho the ignition seems ok, I'd check the ignition cables to the plugs. Sometimes these break down over time... it will idle and drive ok, but when you need power for a hill, or acceration, that's when the wires faults start to show up.
A quick test is to put the car in drive with your left foot on the brake FIRMLY while you press the accerator... if the miss and lack of power shows up, it's usually the ignition cables to the plugs.
