SOURCE: A4 steering lock does not engage and car won't turn over

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

SOURCE: the key has broken in

on the left side of barrel, look for a dowel, there should be a vary small opening that you can take something as small as a pinhead and push the dowel in ,while pushing in on dowel pull the barrel out.the key may need to also be in on position for removal. try that and see if it works. if not please repost your question. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Key will not turn ignition at all from off position & noticed steering wheel also is not locking up even with both front wheels lifted off ground.


think you need a new steering lock ,the flat drive piece on the end of the barrel has broken from the sound of it jamming it up .If you cannot get the key to turn to aux position then you have no chance of changing only the barrel so its a complete steering lock assembly .

How do I get my car keys out when it is stuck in my Nissan Micra K12 ignition?


Try to turn the steering wheel gently from side to side while pulling on the key. Quite often the steering lock engages with the steering wheel shaft and it makes it difficult to get the key out while the shaft puts pressure on the lock.

Replace ignition lock cylinder


Hi Alex, The ignition assembly is mounted onto the steering column with blind bolts. These are special bolts designed in such a way that the heads break off when tightened to the correct torque. We usually remove them with a cold chisel and hammer. An alternative is to cut a slot into which a screw driver can be fitted. Regards John

Remove the ignition lock cover, there is a release button at the end of the lock cylinder, push in with a flat tip screw driver and turn key to the "on" position but don't start car, pull cylinder out with key.

I have an Isuzu Rodeo and the key is stuck in the ignition any idea how to get it out? Year 2000


replace the whole ignition barrel with new key and get key programmed by dealer
can remove barrel and key by removing steering column covers turn ignition to on position and with small shank screw driver push in hole in outer top rear section of barrel assembly then pull out ignition lock barrel with key in it. fit new lock barrel and key, program new key into system and can get door lock barrels coded to suit new key or get code for old key and cut new key so it fits mechanical locks on the rest of the vehicle (just wont turn in ignition) 2 keys for vehicle.

Want to remove the ignition lock cylinder since a broken key is stuck inside.


get a phillipshead un do about 4 screws from underneath plastic cover which hides steering colume. remove cover you will see white plug on the left hand side of ignition barrel disconect.then right hand side there will be acable disconect.now get a small chissel and anti clockwise tap bolts which have no heads on them that are on top of steering colume when they are alittle bit lose use plyers its easier pull bolts out clamp will then come of and then you can pull whole ignition of. now there is 2 brass pins which hold barrel in ignition up near the key end remove and barrel will come out but it might be easier to take whole ignition to locksmith and get them to do it and get new key for around 30 bucks i did a mates about couple months ago seeya orangepeel.
