Question about 2005 Volkswagen Jetta
I am having the SAME exact problem right now!
I called service at a local VW dealership and they are acting as if they have never heard of it - meanwhile this is the SECOND time it has happened to me. I removed the key from the ignition, less than 5 seconds later I tried to insert the key again into the ignition and it will not go in! The car seems to identify that that there is a key in there because it dings when the door is open (as if a key is actually in the ignition). I plan on unplugging the battery tomorrow to solve this ridiculous problem!
I know this is a little late, but I just encountered the same problem with a 2005.5 jetta tdi. Went to put key in ignition and encountered a white plastic tumbler(?) blocking the keyhole. Car was parked, tires were straight and steering wheel was locked. Tried moving wheel up, down, left and right and also tried applying a small amount of oil thinking something was just stuck. Did what I could and finally called VW roadside assistance. Local dealer took a look this afternoon and notified me that the ignition switch is faulty and they have to order a new one from Germany which will take 2 weeks to arrive. Plus side, the part and labor will be covered under CPO warranty, but of course, the warranty doesn't cover a rental car for the two weeks this one will be out of commission.
