Could be the key but more than likely the ignition lock cylinder is failing. Any decent automotive locksmith like Pop-A-Lock can rebuild or replace the ignition to your original key.

Sounds like either your ignition is wearing out or your key is wearing out. First try another key, if it does the same thing it may be your ignition wearing out. If it seems like your key is bad, go to dealer with your car ownership papers and they can cut you an original key. If your key is wearing there is no sense having another one cut from it, you must get the dealer to cut one for you. If this still does not work, I'd say it's an ignition problem.

My key wont go into ignition of my 2003 Cadillac deville. Are there any solutions to getting the key to go into ignition?


If you are unable to insert the key it might be because the tumbler has been turned past the point of key release it happens a lot with worn ignition tumblers try turning the ignition tumbler forward as if to attempt to start it without the key then try to insert the key if that doesn't work try turning it the opposite direction when you get it inserted you need to replace the tumbler asap if anyone who entends on stealing your car the knowledge that you have reported is enough to raise eyebrows of anyone who has bad ententions! I hope that solves your problem?

Okay, to program a key you will need two keys that are already programmed, insert one key ignition turned on and engine off, remove the key and within 10 sec insert the second key and turn ignition on with engine off, remove that key and within 10 sec insert the key to be programed. you will need to do a 30 min.relearn with only one key,you will turn ignition on with engine off and wait about 10 min until light goes out then remove the key and repeat this step when light goes out repeat step one more time then use key to start car, computer has learned all info. you will now turn off engine, insert programmed key turn key on engine off then remove the key and insert key to be programed within 10 sec.all done good day.

the key has magnet on it that may be weakening. It will have to be reprogrammed.

  1. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key.
  2. Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
  3. Insert a new Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime will sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off. The new key has been programmed.
