What would make the ignition switch stick an not turn to start the motor


Clyde, try moving steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key. This sound like it should have been a recall for faulty ignitions as when I googled it, there are a lot of cross fires with the same problem. Clyde, google search (2005 crossfire ignition switch)
There is just too much for me to write.

Does the emobilizer and key have to be replaced if the wrong key was put in ignition and had to be pulled and wiggled pretty hard to remove now it wont start


When you turn the ignition switch to ON(II), the immobilizer system indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK(0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON(II) again.If the system repeatedly does not recognize the coding of your key will need a repair.

Your ignition switch is going bad. The strange noise is the starter remaining engaged and locked to the flywheel. Your best bet is to have the starter tested at your local auto parts store, to deduce that it is not, in fact, your starter.

The key symbol appears


That's your immobilizer system light:
The Immobilizer System protects your car from theft. A properly coded master or valet key must be used in the ignition switch for the engine to start.
If an improperly coded key (or other device) is used, the engine’s fuel system is disabled.
When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the Immobilizer System indicator should come on for a few seconds, then go out. If the indicator starts to blink, it means the system does not recognize the coding of the key. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert it, and turn the switch to ON (II) again.
The system may not recognize your key’s coding if another immobilizer key or other metal object is near the ignition switch when you insert the key. To make sure the system recognizes the key code:
Do not keep other immobilizer keys on the same key ring.
Use a plastic or leather key fob, not metal.
Keep other keys away from your vehicle’s key and the ignition switch while trying to start the engine.
Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it. Electrical problems could result that may make your car undriveable.
This indicator will also blink several times when you turn the ignition switch from ON (II) to ACCESSORY (I) or LOCK (0).
If the system repeatedly does not recognize the coding of your key, contact your Honda dealer.
If you have lost your key and you cannot start the engine, contact your Honda dealer.
Hope this lets you understand the light, and what should be happening.

Starting problems 1998 Nissan Maxima SE V6


Hey there, I would look at the switch on tha back of your ignition. Not the ignition it self, but the switch that's on the back of it. Its white round looking thing about 1 1/2 inches in circumference and it has wires coming out of it. I think that its gone. If you are sure, that your battery and battery connections are OK, than look at that switch. Part is replacable at about $50bucks for the part and than if you can put it in your delf, thsm you will save some money there too. Good luck
