I Have The Full Manual And Own This Car You Can Override It Not Switching Gears. There Is A Little Square Next To The Shifting Lever Pop That Out And Push The Button While Shifting This Will Get It In Gear. But Please Explain Your Problem More. Are You Saying The Ignition Wont Work And You Just Changed The Ignition?

Key will not turn to off and battery dies after several minutes

chances are it is your tumbler or parking gear switch. you can replace the tumbler (ignition switch) or the parking gear switch is not recognizing that the vehicle is in park and preventing the key from being turned off

Orignal keys won't turn to start the car anymore.

I dont know if this will help or not but. If there is alot of weight on the key chain it can wear the tumblers out, or it could just be wore out? Have you tried to have another key made yet?

Key wont turn

Sometimes you can jiggle the steering wheel left and right really hard while trying to turn the key. To change the ignition switch or tumblers you have to remove the steering wheel. Then remove the pressure plate and turn signal switch then you should see the ignition switch. There is usually a pin that you have to pull to release the switch. If I am missing a step it is due to my failing memory. Once you pull the steering wheel, just keep pulling until you get to the switch. Sorry for lack of instuction, I have fibromyalgia and can't remember much anymore. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
