Did it work prior? Did both keys at one time, work with the same ignition switch? If now, both keys are not turning ignition switch, then your ignition switch has now possibly failed. It's possible to
he little tumblers with in the key/lock mechanism, have failed?
try injecting some Graphite into the keyhole. That is a product specifically designed for locks, or any hole that the key is inserted into.
what many do not realize, is that graphite should be the only product injected into these type of holes. Reason being... Is that any other spray type of lubricant, acts like a magnet for dirt, collects dust dirt and creates a sludgy grime within the keyhole.
good luck.

Car wont start after leaving key in ignition,ie went to start car, but phone rang, key in ignition, now wont start.this has happened my wife on several occasions. starts fine on a push


Check the fuse box for the starter relay, and pull out to check pins for corrosion / bad contact. The fact it start on a bump with the key on leads me to suspect the start / crank position of the electrics. Get a knowledgeable person to run through the crank circuit with a meter, also check the condition of earth straps and starter cables. Could be the ignition switch is faulty?

My key will not turn in the ignition in my rx400h, 2006


Sometimes when the car is parked with the wheels turned to one side, it puts pressure on the key.
Try turning the steering wheel a little more each way, while turning the key, to release the pressure.
Hope this helps.

I couldn't find the ALTERNATOR in my car ,my car is LEXUS RX400h 2008


Does it still have a warranty on it? If so I would use that while you got it, and get it fixed free of charge. There is probably a cosmetic plastic cover hiding the alternator. However if you locate the belts than it will lead directly to the alternator.

Could be an ignition switch on the fritz. My wifes 05 was possessed, and would turn on its radio when no one was around and no key in ignition.

Dash lights were wacky as well.

My key locks up and wont turn, my wife's key works fine


Compare the 2 keys and see if yours has a bur on it, take your wife's nail file to it and file it down if you find one. Put a drop of oil on your key and slide it in and out of the ignition. Take the fourty pounds of bling off your key chain if you have any, the quickest way to wear out a lock and key. Does your key have a chip? Hope this helps.
