SOURCE: 2005 honda civic ignition tumbler

Take it to a locksmith. You don't want to risk pulling it down yourself especially where the immobiliser harness is concerned, in addition Honda tumblers are really hard to source, the defectives ones will have to be removed. You need an experienced locksmith to do this.

SOURCE: Dealer cut a new key for Pilot but it won't work

If the key fits mechanically, and the lock turns, then the key has been cut correctly. However if it just won't start the vehicle, then the transponder chip within the key will need programming. The dealer should have the equipment to do this. Do not accept a key that does not start the car - and certainly don't pay unless it does.

Have a 97 honda. Just purchased. It has a toggle switch installed that works with original key ignition. That said... toggle controls whole electrical..everything works..except tail lights,and the dash...

So If I understand, you turn on toggle and then use key to engage starter? Do brake lights and turn lights work, just not the running lights? Or are all tail lights dead. If none work, juice is not getting to the headlamp switch. Best fix would be to replace the probably bad ignition switch and repair wiring back to original, but quick fix would be to run a second wire from toggle switched side to the headlamp switch +

Igintion switch

Electrical portion of the ignition swith is faulty. Replace that and all will be well. A good rule to follow since this a weak point on most of hondas older model cars is the lighter the key chain the longer the life of the electrical portion of the ignition switch.

It's a 97 civic 4 door manual trans the car won't start by the key I can jump the starter an start it an all the fuses an relays are good what do I do??

ah ha,. the problem of too much weight on a key chain -- broke the ignition switch eh??
If not the ignition switch test the clutch pedal switch... you may get lucky there.,
Well,. alternatively, given the year of the vehicle, you could either modify the ignition switch with a push button, or replace the ignition switch..
Best regards

My 97 Honda Civic runs good and up until now, no problems, but when I turn on the key to start it, nothing happens. Have new battery, fully charged, lights on dash do not go off when I turn key to start. ...

Bypass the clutch switch. If the car starts then replace the switch.
If this will not work, then you need to troubleshoot the starter, from the fuse up to solenoid. Might be anything from a bad fuse, bad relay, bad solenoid, corroded starter copper contacts, or a bad starter. Hope this will help.

The key turns and eventually rolls over. It takes

Your question is not complete, The start key does it turn around 360 degrees? if so the ignition switch needs to be replaced, also if it's hard to start when hot, that depends or alot of variables, fuel type, clean air filter, If you say it starts when it feels like doing so, the vehicle doesn't know.Sounds like a bad connection in the ignition switch, also check and clean your ground cable on the battery . The problems are easy to fix and should not cost more that 75.00 the ignition switch is the costly part

Ign switch removel 97 jetta

I had the same problem a couple of years ago. I googled it and found that I needed the ignition switch replaced. I had to take it to the dealer (I checked other places, but the dealer was the least expensive). It ended up costing me about $250, but there were instructions on the Internet for replacing the switch. I'm just not mechanical enough to try it, and some folks said it was a tough job. I googled 97 Jetta ignition switch replace and the instructions came up. I took the printouts to the dealer and told them: here's what's wrong. Of course they didn't believe me until they checked it out for themseleve. Grrr.
