Take it to a locksmith. You don't want to risk pulling it down yourself especially where the immobiliser harness is concerned, in addition Honda tumblers are really hard to source, the defectives ones will have to be removed. You need an experienced locksmith to do this.

1996 chevy suburban ignition tumbler will not turn


Is it not turning to start or won't turn back to lock?

I had that problem on a '97 S10 and it was a loss of accessory power. That locked the switch where it wouldn't turn off.

Anything wierd happen on the car or any recent repair work?

Was replacing the ignition switch and accidently broke off a silver piece off of where the switch goes connected. Can you some one tell me if this can be replaced and if I have to replace the entire key...


Replacing An Ignition Switch..

If The Ignition Switch Is Defective, It Must Be Replaced Regardless. Before Removing A Dashboard-mounted Switch, The Tumbler (Lock Mechanism) Must Be Removed From The Switch.Normally A Small Piece Of Wire Is Inserted Into A Hole IN The Front Of The Switch And The Key Is Turned.This Will Release The Tumbler From The Switch So The Tumbler Can Be Pulled Free. Then Unplug The Wires And Remove The Old Switch.

A Steering Column-mounted Ignition Switch Is Separated From The Tumbler. It Is Normally About Halfway Down And On Top Of The Steering Column. To Remove This Type Of Switch, Remove The Fasteners Holding The Steering Column To The Dash. This Will Let The Column Drop Down So You Can Replace The Ignition Switch.

Key gets stuck in the ignition


Purchase a tube of powered graphite and spray the graphite on the key and into the ignition tumbler. It is sold by hobby shops.This should solve your problem. Do not use WD40 or a similar lubricant. If this does not solve the problem then you may end up having to replace the tumbler assembly.

Steering wheel locked and ignition wont turn


Yes it does sound to me like the key is the problem.
the only other thing for a steering locking up would be the steering lock silenoid but that is activated by the brake pedal and the key has to be turned
if this is the orginal key it could be something else because the key and the tumblers inside the ingintion would wear down the same time together,but is the is a replacement key or back-up it will be the key because the tumblers would have been worn done by a different key.
try wiggling the key as you turn maybe you can get it to turn.
You will likely have to replace the ignition and key together.

What you need to do is this:

Remove Steering wheel
Remove big connector under dash, it has a 8mm bolt that is holding it in, this will loosen up the wires in the steering column
Pull out clock spring and let it hang
Get lock plate compressor and remove lock plate, the snap ring is kinda hard to get off
Remove plates and spring behind lock plate
Put turn signal switch to the turn right position
remove three screws holding in turn signal cam
remove key warning buzzer, needle nose pliers and it just pulls out, be gentle
remove screw with a torx head that holds the ignition tumbler in place

Key lock ignition


Remove the steering column covers and you'll find the electical switch to the ignition. You'll find a rod that activates the switch from the lock and tumbler. Check for anything broken between the two.
