Key won t turn in ignition


Try using the other key. Sounds like the key came in contact with a magnet someplace and wiped out the program on the key. Probably have to go back to the delearship and get it programed again.

Steering wheel won't lock, key won't come out


If the ignition normally only locks with the vehicle in park position, then check the switch on the gear lever mechanism is working.
If not, then you'll have to jiggle and wiggle that key out or replace the ignition lock.

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.

Key won;t go into ignation on my 2002 buick park ave


It is possible that the tumblers in the ignition need lubrication. I had this problem with a boat ignition. Spray a small amount of break free, or WD 40 or graphite penetrating oil into the slot and slowly work the key gently into it. A drop of oil in the slots of the key won't hurt.

I put key in ignition and it won't turn. Steering wheel will turn but key won't turn. We have 2 keys and neither will work. What can I do?


If the wrong key was inserted it may have bent a tumbler pin,maybe try some wd-40 or similar and work it with the right key,might drop the tumbler back,,if not the whole ign. cylinder will have to be changed

go to dealer to reset system, or download instructions from internet. It may be possible for a tow-truck operator to do this, but ask and check first, so you don't pay for nothing.

Engine stalls after a few seconds..'99 Venture


Does the security light flash or come on steady ? Have a lot of thing's on your key ring ? Other key's with transponder inside , Do you know what a transponder is ?

The Ignition Key (Transponder)
The ignition key for PASS-Key® III equipped vehicles is a typical ignition key using a transponder pellet located in the end of the key. The ignition key transponder value is used in order to determine if a valid ignition key is being used in order to start the vehicle. When the ignition key is inserted into the ignition cylinder and the PASS-Key® III module detects the ignition voltage (the ignition switch is in RUN or START) the module measures the transponder pellet value. The PASS-Key® III module validates this value and performs the following functions:
• If the ignition key transponder value is valid, the PASS-Key® III module performs the following (system enable) functions:
- The PASS-Key® III module sends a pulse width modulated signal to the PCM to request fuel enable.
- The PCM enables the fuel system.
- This function enables the engine to start.
• If the ignition key transponder value is invalid, the PASS-Key® performs the following (system disable) functions:
- The PASS-Key® III module does not send the fuel request signal to the PCM.
- The PCM does not enable the fuel system.
- This function does not enable the engine to start and run. The engine may start and then stall due to residual fuel in the fuel system.
The PASS-Key® III module can identify up to 10 valid key codes to operate the vehicle.

Having excess thing's on you ring , including other PASS-Key® III keys , can confuse the computers .
