SOURCE: How do you rplace an ignition lock cylinder on a 98 toyota corolla

Crbbndt's solution is perfect. Just be aware that if you have trouble getting the new assembly back in, you may need to use a pair of long nose pliers to turn the blade inside the receiver hole back to the aux position from off. They sometimes turn them selves to the off position during the removal

SOURCE: 2002 Saturn Vue Ignition Cylinder lock problem

The keys on this vehicle have a problem with wearing down to the point where it's a pain to get them to work in the ignition cylinder. Examine your keys for wear and that may have been your problem since day one.
I have a 2004 Vue and I have the only key I got with it (used car) worn down to the point where it will no longer work in the back door and is a pain to use in the ignition cylinder. It also falls right out of the ignition cylinder when the car is running. I have a copy of the key that was made when I got the car which works just fine and doesn't fall out, and looking at the two side by side, you can see that Saturn's key has worn down substantially since I got it two years ago.

Were is the ignition switch on a 2003 saturn ion


The Ignition starter switch is located directly to the rear of the ignition lock cylinder and it is directly actuated by the lock cylinder. You must remove the outer covers of the column to replace it. Below is a picture of the switch. Use the OEM part as it is far better than aftermarket parts and about the same price.

How do you replace an ignition switch on a 1998 Saturn SL


You know I just had a chevy dealer tell me they could replace the lock cylinder and ignition switch in my girlfriend's 99SW for 88 dollars in half a day. 3 months later they had changed the lock cylinder and it cost 155 dollars. they had to send it out to saturn to get the keys to match, and they told me that the steering column would have to come out in order to replace the switch as it is put in with tamper proof hardware which needs to be drilled out. as yet it is not done.

Wrong Key was used in 99 Saturn sl1 now the ignition is completely locked up.


If the wrong cut key was used you are probly going to have to replace the ignition lock cylinder as the tumblers may be bent or the interior of the lock cylinder bent. Also recommend you replace the key. Thank you, bluebirdmate

Saturn L-100 and the key will not turn in ignition


THE PINS IN THE LOCK CYLINDER ARE STICKING, BUY SOME GRAPHITE POWDER LOCK CYLINDER LUBE FROM ANY LOCK SHOP OR HARDWARE STORE, SPRAY IT INTO THE CYLINDER AND WORK THE KEY IN AND OUT OF THE CYLINDER, IF THIS DOESN'T DO IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE IGNITION KEY LOCK CYLINDER.
