very simple, insert key in the ignition. Then insert a small phillips head screw driver in the middle hole underneath the steering column.You should feel the screwdriver head hit a hole.Maintain pressure on the screwdriver. Turn the key to the on postion(without starting the vehicle).You should be able to pull the igntion switch out with the key.
try to steering all the way to left and hold on to that then insert the key pushing in and turn itclock-wise to counter clock wise, or try to steer on the right all the way.. same procedure until you are able to ignite the car. it was just locked when you parked your car without putting the wheels straight.
tap the ignition lock cylinder with the plastic end of a scrwedriver (with the key removed). then insert the key and try to start. Try this several times. If you get it to turn immediately replace the igntion lock cylinder. The cylinder needs to be in the on position in order for the lock button to be depressed so that the cylinder can be removed from the housing.
If you still can't get it to turn than you will have to drill out the lock button in order to get the old lock cylinder out. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you have some experience and understand what you are doing.
The lock button can be accessed by removing the lower steering column cover.
unplug the electrical connector to the igntion coil will make the car to quit running.
I think it's a mechanical problem with the ignition lock cylinder. it's required to remove the steering wheel to get to the igntion lock cylinder.
at least get the car to quit running so you can try to get the key to turn by keep on turning the key and move the shifter and tap the brake at the same time. hope it will get loose some how. good luck
You must first remove the steering wheel. You may be able to work around the turn signal switch. Insert the key and turn the ignition to the "run" position. It will slide out of its mounting hole now. If it does not come out easily push the locking pin in with a 16 penny nail or other pointed instrument.
It could be that chip inside key just went bad. Do u have a 3rd key? That works? If so take the 2 good keys and turn the igntion to run postion for 3 secs each then do the same for the 3rd key and this will reprogram it if the chip is ok. If you do not have 2 good keys then u will have to have a scan tool that will link up with PATS system and perform security access to reprogram it.
you need to put in a new ignition.the tumblers in yours are worn out so you can start the car without a key.its about 12.00 at the auto parts store and theres a pin hole where you can insert the end of a paperclip to help remove the old ignition switch
No it is actually pretty simple
1) Disconnect battery
2)Remove shroud (cover behind steering wheel)
3)insert key and turn to start position while holding it in start position there will be a small hole in top of where the ignition goes into the column an depress retainer pin and pull out igntion
