How to remove ignition barrel from Holden Astra Sedan

My central locking has stopped working, i have found out it is due to the car not recognising that the key has been removed from the ignition barrel. This also causes the problem that my radio doesn't turn off automatically etc. Is there an easy fix for this? Or do I need to replace the entire keyless entry system including the manual locking for the drivers side door? Any help is appreciated

    We had disconnected the battery before but it may have been the positive end. By disconnecting the negative end and leaving it for longer, IT WORKED! I am so so happy haha Thank you!

First of all it sounds like your ign lock is sticking,when you take the key out of the lock turn the steering wheel to get the lock to click on,if that works,get some spray grease,not wd40,and spray into the barrel,thenn work the key in and out.That should also solve the problem resetting your key.

try a Holden wreckers for a new stick as it would be cheaper than a new one . As Holden do not keep incidental spares after 5 years I would imagine it will be hard to get a genuine button but you can ask the spares department.

Security system 2001 holden astra


hi, I have the same problem. The central remote locking is controlled by the soriginal stereo. Thats why it has an extra section of wires than other stereos. I cut this section off and connect it back to the original stereo and the remote lock works again. but as long as you connect the rest of the wires to the new stereo, the lock lost again. Now is like nly music or the lock. I have not find a way to let both of them work. Please let me know if you do.

    Key's snapped off inside ignition


    Hi I would suggest you ring the Automobile association, and see whether one of their mobile mechanics can solve your problem. extracting a car key from the barrel may be more difficult than it appears. He, the mobile man may have done it before and have the right tools for the problem.
