Key will not turn in ignition

Today, I accidentally put a different key in my '03 honda civics ignition .After i put the key in it made a beeping noise as if it was the correct key. i took it out and used the correct one. I started the car and drove it all day without much problem( started to get a little stiff on the initial start after a while) now it wont start at all,the wheel is locked and it will not let me put it in gear or unlock the wheel. nor will it allowme to turn over at all. Any suggestions? there isnt any help in my manual or anything and the only thing i can think of it being is an antitheft system if a wrong key is inserted into the ignition. please help!

    If that be the case it is remembering and should loose that memory back to the factory default if you disconect the battery. It is worth a try.

In newer cars like that... if you stick another key from a different car in the ignition, it often times throws off the computer and it will have to be taken to a honda dealer ship

My key won't unlock drivers side lock on my 2004 honda civic ex


Your problem is not descriptive enough. Has it always been like this or just started happening? If it has always been like this, there is a possibility of a faulty lock OR someone has the door lock replaced and in that event, a new one from Honda comes with a new key that is different from the one for the ignition and the trunk and the glove box. Please provide more details.

It isn't the steering lock?
If not, please check if you have a spare key. Does this work in a single shot? Then copy that key and use that.

You may need a new ignition key cylinder or your key grooves may have worn down and no longer mesh with your ignition cylinder. Good luck. Mark
