Sounds like the tumblers were messed up. The key shouldn't come out while the ignition is on. If I am right, this has one of those very expensive "Chip" keys? Buying a new key could be more expensive then a lock cylinder. It will probably be cheaper to keep those keys then buy new ones on top of whatever it takes to repair the damage to the lock. You may be better off calling a "Locksmith". Even a new lock cylinder will have to be coded to something. You should be able to find a locksmith that will make a service call.
Let me know how that goes?

To clarify something you said, the accessories should go off when the key switch is in the start position.
Are you getting power to the coil and the computer when the key switch is on and in start ?

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

After changing the ignition switch, now the car won't start, or even click when turning the key. What do I do now?


Changing the ignition switch breaks the communication between the key,ignition,and TDM (theft deterrent module). With out these three parts communicating, the vehicle goes into antitheft mode and turns off the starter. Read about it thru this link, also offers ways to fix yourself. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

it sounds like the lock uo solenoid to the torque convertor is hung on. Find some one who knows about transmissions to unhook the plug to the lock up solenoid and ur problem will be temporarily fixed or you can put a new lock up solenoid in it to fix it. But it will not hurt it un pluged it will even save on gas.

Jerking and can't turn off oil cahnge light


hi friend,

1.With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
2.Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
3.Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
4.Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
5.Release the odometer button/knob.
6.Turn key to OFF position.
7.That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so thank u for using fixya regards, sivaranjini
