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: steering won't unlock so that we can start van

If the wheel is turned left or right try turning it in the same direction the wheels are turned, the steering wheel should move a little and should be able to turn the key while holding the wheel. May need to use some muscle to move the wheel depends on how it was parked.

SOURCE: ignition key / lock steering

Try spraying WD 40 into the ignition as possible. Let sit a second.. Then try working the key. It should come out. Then work the key in and out and turn on and off; a few minutes. This is to loosen the ignition up. I had the same problem, once with my car key. The key came right out.

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

once the keyassemlbe is out , take it to any key/lock shop and
ask him/her to fix it, if they cant, then buy a new one.
if you want to hot wire the car, get the FSM, and use that and its
schematics to see if you can do it, if not. ask a qualified, autoelectric
shop to do it.
if the key switch has locking steering feature, like all here(usa)
do not let it fail, is it might lock while driving. DO NOT LET THAT HAPPEN. Safety first, no>?

Try scraping your new key's edge. Its possible that the steering lock may be slightly worn [to your old keys] and the new key may be sticky in the lock mechanism. Also try squirting a little lubricating greece into the lock mechanism.

KEY WONT TURN IN IGNITION


OK, obvious first: turn it the other way. Don't laugh, I've done this.

Otherwise, barrel is jammed. Get a new barrel, dismantle the steering column and replace the existing one. You'll now need two keys: one to unlock the car and one for the ignition. You won't be the first.

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.
