How would you get your ignition to turn the engine over without a key?

If the ignition key is damaged or the lock cylinder is damaged and you can't get the key in ignition lock...start there. Is the key broken off in the ignition? Please provide some more information as the description of your problem doesn't make much sense.

Sounds like a very warn out lock and tumblers. Try angling the key as you turn the lock.

SOURCE: mitsubishi galant 2004 key stuck in ignition

1st Remove Battery cable from Battery because the only time the air bags will deploy is when the key is in the ignition. I have tilt steering and when I put the steering wheel in the up most position. I came right out. But now it seems to stick more lately.

SOURCE: my key is stuck in the ignition on my 97 Saab 900.

Some Saabs lock the gearlever in reverse as a security measure, and won't let you take the key out until reverse is selected.

Ignition switch stuck will not turn wont ether way


Two causes for this:
(1) steering wheel needs to be turned, then try key again.
(2) faulty ignition switch in need of replacement (including a new set of keys).
When starting a car, the ignition is locked if the wheel has been rotated, which is an anti-theft
feature: the car thinks its being stolen when the wheel is turned while there's no key in the ignition.
To fix: turn the wheel back and forth, returning it (one way or another) to the original position
when the car was turned off, and unlocking the ignition, allowing you to start your car.

The ignition switch is hanging up in my 1990 ford bronco,


I just had that same problem on a silverado. Yes, you have to replace the switch. Autozone has a tool you can use to remove the steering wheel. If you are not mechanically inclinced you can still do this. Removing the steering wheel sounds scary, or at least it did to me, but it wasnt bad at all.

My lumina wont start. the key turns into the second position but wont advance to the starting position much like something is blocking it. what can i do?


If there are other keys on the key chain that holds the car key remove them. Now try starting the car. If that doesn't work wiggle the key and depress brake pedal, move shifter lever into neutral and try starting the car.
If the car starts take it right to a repair shop there are several things that could be wrong with it .(neutral safety switch,shifter release,shifter , ignition switch)
If car doesn't start have it towed there and stay away from ignition switch no need to force it to start youe gonna break thekey in the switch and ahve a bigger problem.
