SOURCE: car will not turn off

You have a bad ignition switch the mechanical part is operating but when it is turned off it is not pulling the switch to the off position, two things that I can think of can cause this. One is the rod that runs down the steering column is slightly bent from wear over time and allows it to start but when the rod moves in the reverse direction the bent rod is slightly to high to pull the switch to the off position. The other problem could be with the switch itself the return spring inside the switch could be broken so the switch does not turn off. You can remove the bottom kick panel and disconnect the battery then with a flash light look on the top of the column and see if you can see the rod moving when turning the key off and on if it's moving then it is the adjustment of the rod or the switch. To remove the switch you will have to drop the steering wheel down to get to the switch, you may be able to get to the switch without dropping the column but it will be harder to see what is wrong with it. There are two bolts that hold the switch on and has a multi flat connector on it you have to squeeze the two plastic ears on each end of the switch to release the wire harness. Then you will have to wiggle the connector loose

It might work if you disconnect your battery for 10 minutes to clear the old Code and then reconnect it before you try to program the new FOB.

I have a VW Golf 01 and the key fob opens and shuts the doors fine. But as soon as i put the key in the ignition to start the car it wont start all lights go off and the alarm goes off. Help please!

Okay, this sounds like theres a problem with the switch inside the door, try this, go to the passenger door and unlock it with the key, note if it has a lock, most newwer cars are only putting locks on drivers door, but if it has one use the key to unlock it and then try to start the car, if theres no lock then try the truck lock, unlock it with the key and try to start the car, if that doesnt work then use the fob to unlock all doors by pushing it two times and then start the car, the problem is the switch inside the door lock, this switch is part of the latch asm, good day.

The key wont turn at the final point to crank the car, last year my tumble broke, i had it fixed but when it broke i couldnt move the key at all, its not doing thay this time, 2 days ago i went to the...

Not an exact solution, but perhaps information that might lead to one.

1.Replaced the tumblers? I believe I would replace the entire ignition switch this time. It's my belief that the body of the ignition switch is worn inside, and will keep damaging the tumblers.

2.Do you have a tilt steering wheel? It's best to keep the steering column in straight line when starting the car, then tilt the wheel to where you want, after the car is started. When the steering column is in a tilted position, it puts undue strain on the ignition key switch, and the mechanism the ignition key switch operates, on GM vehicles.

This mechanism, consists of a half moon gear on the ignition key switch, that turns inside a 'Planetary' gear. I used the term 'Planetary', as the gear shape is hard to describe. It resembles an oblong loop, shaped like the number 9, with gear teeth on the inside bottom of the loop. This 'Loop' rotates, when the gear teeth of the ignition key switch, engage the teeth on the loop, and pushes a rod, or retracts the rod. The rod goes down the side of your steering column, and turns on, or turns off an ignition switch, located at the bottom left side of the steering column.

Having the steering wheel tilted, puts a strain on the ignition key switch internals, the oblong loop can break, and/or gear teeth can be stripped off.
