Question about Cars & Trucks
Key stuck in the ignition, wouldn't move (think small pins from bezel fell into the tumblers). Bought new ignition lock, installed it, but when I turn the key there is no power to starter, although all the dash lights (check engine, anti-lock, etc.) come on with key in 'on' position. Is this the result of the fibre gear and the one on the bottom of the ignition lock being incorrectly oriented?

SOURCE: key gets stuck in ignition
My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.
The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.

Hi had same problem last Friday you can put a fuse in (30 amp) for gearbox and it will start when you turn key but you will not be able to select a gear I'm 100% sure it's the sensonic activator box you can pick one up for about £150-200 second hand.

Your tumblers are worn. You can "Bump" the lock to get it to work, but this is a very temporary fix. To bump the lock, simply tap on the end of the key with something heavy like a short 2X4 , the heal of a shoe or something similar - while in the ignition while attempting to turn the key to the start position. DO NOT turn the engine back of until you get the car home or to a repair facility.
