Mine does this and has done for past six years. Just put your key in the barrel and before you turn the key hit the key in further with a gentle hit pushing it in a mm more your key will now turn

Changed ignition barrel on suzuki ignis 01 now.it will only start by bumping it once started there is no warning lights on and it drive fine you try start with key it clicks or does nothing


Why did you change the ignition cylinder? Sounds as if the ignition switch is not working properly. This switch is usually attached to the back side of the ignition cylinder and the barrel portion of the cylinder turns the switch. You can remove the switch from the cylinder and insert a screwdriver into the switch and turn it manually. If nothing happens when the switch is turned, it could be defective

Hi, I have a suzuki swift 2000 model, the key has snapped in the ignition, i have a used replacement ignition barrel and key. When fitted the engine turns over but won't start. I'm guessing th


This car has a chip key, you can't just put any old key in it it must be programmed to not turn on the security system and disable starting, which is what you have now, the system has locked you out.

1993 Mercedes 280C Ignition key unlocks steering, but won't turn further. Can't start car. What could the be the problem.


Hi,
it could be a jammed barrel and key within the lgn lock. have you tried "rocking" the steering wheel gently, and at the same time try and turn the ign key?

Visit a lock smith or somewhere like an Ace Hardware store and get a small plastic squeezie bottle of powdered graphite. With a thin flatblade screwdrive or piece of wire, or something similar. Ease the ign key slot cover to one side and direct a few squirts of the powdered graphite into the ignition key switch. Next insert the ign key and GENTLY rotate the key back and forth, as if trying to operate and switch off the ignition. This will give the graphite a chance to penetrate the lock mechanism.

After approx 5mins, try and turn the key as if to start the car. If the barrel refuses to turn as before, then you will need to open up the ign lock and check the base of the barrel .

Do NOT use oil of any form in the lock. Oil attracts dirt like a magnet and will foul the ign lock.

I hope this helps you.

Good luck.

How can i take the ignition switch off the clip that u push to take the key out is stuck


Hi ,
If you mean the ignition key barrel ??? The key needs to be inserted into the switch assy and turned to (usually) the first key position, there will be a small hole in the barrel assy in order to press a locating pin (check replacement barrel for exact location). Press the pin and pull the key assy from the barrel assy. ( door locks can be coded to new key also) Good Luck

How to remove ignition barrel from 1997 toyota celica


Remove the plastic covers around the ignition switch, insert the key in the ignition and turn the key to ignition on position (just before start position) now locate the pin on the side of the ignition switch which is flush with the aluminium housing holding the barrel,the pin is about 3 mm in diameter.Gently press the pin inwards (which is spring loaded) with a sharp pointed object e.g small screwdriver and at the same time while holding the pin, pull on the ignition key as if you want to remove the key, and the barrel will slide out completely.

Phillip

Most likely there you have a security system VAT (Vehicle Anti-Theft) module. If you try to bypass this the car will not start. Have a mechanic or yourself get to the main wiring harness to the ignition in the steering column under the dash, unplug it and use another ignition with a key in it to learn the security system code first before trying to start it.
