Do i have to remove the steering wheel to change the ignition switch on a 2002 cavalier


Ignition switch located half way down steering column.
Ignition tumbler (Where you insert the key) Need to remove steering wheel, if tilt steering need remove c clip, then there is a hex bolt securing the tumbler.
Ignition switch is a bit more involved.
hope this helps, James Booth

My wife tried to to start her 2004 cavalier with the wrong key, and now the ignition will not turn with the right key


Hello foxrider.
Chances are when the wrong key was put in it may have damaged the lock tumblers.
The lock cylinders on these cars are enough of a problem using proper keys.Not very well made to begin with.
You could try a very light oil such as WD40 to lubricate the tumblers in case 1 may be stuck up into the barrel of the cylinder and gently run the key in and out several times.
Jiggling the key inside the cylinder will sometimes loosen them up too.
If you do get it working it may be a good idea to replace the cylider and key soon as it may fail you again.
I hope you succeed in getting it to turn, otherwise it may be a job for a locksmith.
Good luck with it.

Your ignition switch is bad you'll have to replace it. It's the electrical ignition switch not the key tumbler one. Good luck.

1999 cavalier: key in the ignition switch won't turn


Try shooting some wd-40 in the tumbler, and working the key around a bit. If have another key, I would try that as well. If that does not work for you, you may have to replace the "ignition tumbler".

Key won't turn in the ignition


if you tap on the lock cylinder with a small hammer it may jar it enough to get it to turn.....to replace the tumblers you will need to remove the lock cylinder and then disassemble it. each tumbler has a certain number on it and will need replaced with that same number. it is easier to have it dealer or locksmith do it.
