Can you suggest me the name of any best quality tumbler?

Quality tumbler are the one which will help you to keep your beverages as it is without the effect of temperature. I always prefer to use Yeti tumbler because this tumblers keeps ice 2X longer than plastic tumblers and are designed for maximum ice retention - and work just as well for hot beverages.It had a double-wall vacuum insulation which will keep beverages cold or piping hot longer. This tumbler have a Dimensions: 6 7/8 in high; lip diameter of 3 1/2 in. It is a BPA-free and have No Sweat Design to make sure your hands stay dry.

I lost my key an attempted to start with a screwdriver now my tumbler is trashed. can i still remove the tumbler by pressing the removal pin?

You have to remove the plastic cover on the bottom of the ignition column.Where the tumbler goes in you will see a shiny pin that hold the tumbler tooth can drill that pin out carefully and use patience starting with a small bit size and working your way up.don not remove any aluminum material from the column as your new tumbler will not lock in to the column. These cars and columns are plentiful in the junkyard if you are not successful and don't take a lot of time to swap out.

What is the proper way to chisel out tumblers in an ignition lock cylinder

Without knowing what your driving I can only guess. But you don't chisel out the tumblers. You have to remove the lock assm. from the column and on the lock cyl. there will be a strip of metal which has to be gently pried off and you will find 5 springs. At the bottom of those springs are the tumblers. Be careful of those tumblers get one in the wrong place and your key will no longer work. What is the reason you want to chisel out the tumblers???? You may be going about the problem all wrong.

Key will not turn

If your key will not turn at all there is a good chance that your ignition tumbler has gone bad. The tumbler is the part that your key actually goes into. The tumbler is fairly easy to remove, and the new tumbler will actually come with step by step instructions. A new lock tumbler will normally cost no more then $30. If that does not work the only other option is the ignition switch itself and those are more expensive costing on average around $150 or more. I hope this helps you out, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Can a locked ignition on a 2004 Pontiac Aztex only be repaired by the dealership since the key has a chip? Cee

Nope it can be repaired at another facility.The ignition tumbler can be changed and as long as the the tumblers are still coded to the key the same key will still work, Now if the tumbler is installed with a new key then the relearn process may need be performed which takes about 30 minutes additional but not required that the dealership does the work.

How do you take out a radio on a 96' century buick?

this is a easy part to replace,, if the tumbler still works and you can start the car ,,, put the key in the tumbler and start the car up ,, this is the position ware the tumbler is ready to come out ,,,, if you look on the bottom steering column bezel there is an access hole in the plastic panel ,, use a pick , or something like a pick to insert it into the hole and push up ,, this will release the lock tumbler pin and you can wiggle the hole key and tumbler out of the steering column ,,,,,see below

then put the new tumbler in the same position and depress its pin ,, slide it in the hole and shut the car off ,, this will force the pin out and the tumbler is now in place ..

Good luck.

My anti theft alarm goes off and makes it to where I can't start my car how do i bypass this

You can't do it; the Theft System it's integrated to the vehicle control computer ECU/PCM; you need install one INTERFACE to make this work.

Review this Wiring Diagram and this comment: when installing a 791 TRANSPONDER BYPASS System on this vehicle it will be necessary to remove the BOTTOM STEERING COLUMN Cover and IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER to gan access to the Factory Transponder System around the Ignition Switch. To do so will require that you first look at the bottom of the STEERING COLUMN COVER to identify the screw holes from the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER RELEASE PIN HOLE, that is required to remove the Ignition Switch Tumbler, the IGNITION SWITCH RELEASE PIN HOLE is the SMALLEST Hole in the plastic cover in this picture. NOTE *** to remove the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER, a TORX #15 Bit on a Screw Driver will work just fine. Incert it up into this hole and press, at the same time, turning the IGNITION SWITCH ON and the Tumbler will pull out at the same time. This Must be done to remove the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER so that the BOTTOM Steering Column Cover can be removed to gain access to the TRANSPONDER SYSTEM built around the IGNITION SWITCH.

Also, its possible that you need other details from the Taurus's Owners Manual.

Hope helps.

My ignition is stuck in locked position and it ownt turn over

It sounds like the classic "switch needs replacing". You only need the tumbler replaced. Before installing the new tumbler take it and your door key to your local locksmith and they can key the new tumbler to work with the old key. This saves you from have to have two different keys.

Ignition tumbler locked up. Key still works well in doors. Steering wheel is not locking, but key wont turn

try a spare key, or push key into lock while turning
it is the tip [pointy end] of the key that releases the switch tumbler lock allowing it to turn. keys & switches wear out, a 'heavy' key ring especially wears the switch.
