My friend in Slovenia broke their only key in the ignition of their Daewoo Nubira 1998 and I really want to help him out by finding out what type of ignition cylinder we would need to get in order to...

The barrels are reasonably standard so take the car details to a good car part specialist and they can get one for you. Changing the barrel can be difficult so, depending on where on the key it has snapped, you may be able to pull the broken part back out of the barrel and get a new key cut. You'll need a set of fine pointed surgical style tweezers, needle nose pliers and A LOT OF PATIENCE!! On a 1998 car the key slot should be worn enough to give only a little bit of resistance. If you can see the broken end use the tweezers to work it far enough out to grab with the pliers.

Is the Honda Acty 1985 ignition key the same one as door key

with new cars it is normal to have the one key code for all the locks on the car
if your ignition key is different to door locks or boot lock it is possible that a new barrel was fitted at some time requiring a new key where the barrel should have been recoded to existing key
it is still possible that a locksmith can re code the barrel to the door lock key reducing the necessity of having many keys

Why is my Ford Transit Ignition locking so that I cannot turn the key further to 'turn over'the engine?

still something wrong with the two
do the door locks/boot work ok with the keys
did you replace the old keys with a new set of key s at the same time as the barrel

Cannot open trunk of 1994 audi cabriolet

There is a key over ride position if your boot becomes locked due to electrical failures you have to turn the key in the boot lock that bit further then push in the barrel.

Picture the slot position something like ten past eight rather than 6 oclock or five past seven

Ignition switch in Toyota Land cruiser not working

sounds like the inside workings of the barrel are worn out or broken. you will probably need to take the barrel out and replace it . Before you put the new barrel in you may need to take both new and old barrel to a locksmith and get them to change the slides over from the old one to the new one, or you can do it yourself but it is a bit fiddly. If you don't change the slides then the new ignition key won't fit the doors as well as the ignition. hope this helps

My bmw 316i model 1997 has problem releasing the steering lock mechanism. Key also battles to staert car.

order a new ignition barrel from your local BMW agent before your lock packs up all together and you will have an even bigger problem, to remove your barrell turn your key to the first position then insert a 1.2mm rod or drill down the little hole in the edge of the chrome key slot to push down the detent that hold the barrell in, pulll out old barrell with the key then fit new one.

I have an Isuzu Rodeo and the key is stuck in the ignition any idea how to get it out? Year 2000

replace the whole ignition barrel with new key and get key programmed by dealer
can remove barrel and key by removing steering column covers turn ignition to on position and with small shank screw driver push in hole in outer top rear section of barrel assembly then pull out ignition lock barrel with key in it. fit new lock barrel and key, program new key into system and can get door lock barrels coded to suit new key or get code for old key and cut new key so it fits mechanical locks on the rest of the vehicle (just wont turn in ignition) 2 keys for vehicle.

The key will not enter the ignition switch and there is a beeping when the door is open, like when the signal light is still on

your ignition barrel has jammed at position II not returned to pos I. Spray releasing oil into the lock and hope it will release apart from that it's a new ignition barrel, the only problem with this is you'll have a different key for the ignition to the doors and boot.
