Question about 2008 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

Key wouldn't go in ignition. Lubed with WD-40 still no good.

Had to replace ignition switch assembly. Now have to program keys to car. I was given a code to start the car so I can get it to the dealer for programming, but don't want to try it until I'm ready to go to the dealer. How many times will this code work?

2002 chev surburban switch won,t turn


If the ignition switch is jammed, and you cannot free it by moving the steering wheel back and forth while trying the ignition switch, simply replace the ignition switch tumbler and lock assembly with a new one. Before going to the trouble of replacing the entire ignition switch, try squiring a moderate amount of WD-40 or other light penetrating oil into the ignition switch key hole, let it sit overnight, then try again the next morning. Often, that will clear the issue.

Ignition has locked and the key won't turn


Try spraying some kind of lubricant in the key hole (WD-40, etc.). Push the key in and out of the ignition switch several times to move the lubricant around. Then, while trying to turn the key, wiggle the steering wheel back and forth. You might have to wiggle pretty hard. If it still doesn't work, you may have to replace the ignition lock assembly.

The key gets stuck in the ignition sometimes it turns and other times it doesn't. could it be the transponder?


The first thing to check is to carefully examine the ignition key. If it is worn down, or even slightly bent, get a new key cut. If you don't have a key in good shape to copy from, your Toyota dealer can cut one, if they know your VIN number. If your key looks good, the most likely suspect is your ignition lock cylinder. You can try lubing it with a little graphite lock lube, but no WD-40 or anything!

1999 olds aurora when you turn the key just says clean key wait 3 minutes


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.

Difficulty inserting ignition key


a good trick is to spray your key with WD-40 and rapidly insert and pull out about 20 times. do it 10 times and respray with WD-40 10 more times it has always worked for me. also if you have a key with a million different things hanging off of it take them ALL off. the extra weight will eventually wear out all of the tumblers in the ignition and you will have to replace it with a new one. happy motoring hope I could help!

1998 Wranger Ignition Key Stuck / Steering Column Locked


I have had this same problem on 4 of my Jeeps. A locksmith provided me with two answers.
This key thing happens to me at least once a week.
It is a common problem with Jeeps. 1998 Wrangler, 2007 Cherokee and two 2000 Cherokees all had the issue.


1. Replace the tumbler assembly. $150. USD (Not!)
2. Place the key in the ignition, smartly impact the key on the **** end, end that is sticking out of the ignition. (Harder is not better) strike straight on as to not break the key off. 4 or 5 strikes should fix the problem every time.

FYI - flooding the switch with WD-40 will not fix the issue, it is a tumbler problem.
