The point of contact between the key and the starter has been displaced further, so the key must go further to establish contact. It's an electrical fault.

SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition of 1976 chevy corvette stingray 350 auto

If I understand, the key will not rotate to all of the normal positions? If this is true, then I would guess that the trani didn't fully return to the park position please verify, You can check the ignition switch(the one that is half way down the steering column) for defects. Is there any binding, does the rotate freely? Thank you; good luck.

Fordfiesta 2010 makes a clicking sound and does not want to start


Most like;y cause of that is a weak battery. IT may seem okay, but without enough current to engage, the starter solenoid will just click or chatter. Have the battery tested. If that is not the problem, then it most likely is the starter itself.

My key will not go into the ignition on my 2010 Kia Soul, tried moving the steering wheel and the gear shifter and still nothing. What else can I do besides replacing the ignition switch?


The steering wheel is locked when the ignition is turned off. Sometimes when getting out of the car, some people will be holding on to the steering wheel. Occasionally, the steering wheel will be pulled as they get out of the car. This will cause the locking mechanism to be pulled past it's normal locking position, making it impossible to insert your key. You may be able to correct this by turning the steering wheel to the left then to the right, back and forth with a strong grip on the wheel, while trying to insert your key.at the same time. If you cannot get the steering wheel back to it's normal alignment, where your key can be inserted, call your local KIA dealer and ask for help. They should come to you and fix it for you. They made have to remove the steering wheel to release the locking mechanism and realign the steering wheel to line up properly with the lock.

Hi there i have a 2004 mk6 ford fiesta bassically starter motor continues to spin while engine is running i changed the starter motor about a month ago because i thought that was the problem it seemed to...


i would think this is an ignition switch problem if starter spins when ign key removed, the ign switch isn't cutting power to the starter circuit ,remove the steering column cowling panels and check for loose wires etc , with a voltmeter find the cranking wire , only comes live when key turned to starting position and should give no power when key returned to normal position , i suspect it is internal to the switch , you could try spraying wd40 into the switch barrel in case there is a sticking part otherwise a new ign switch will be required good luck ,keep me posted if you wish

Find the person who bought this car new, take that person and the car to a Ford dealer. They will fix it for free, it is under warranty. Now that you know you have no business monkeying around with anything except the ignition key, the pedals, and the steering wheel, stay away from other things on the car.

1994 z71 truck key stuck in acc position will not turn to be removed can turn key to start, truck runs ok remove ignition fuse to turn off is the key lock Solenoid on the coloum the issue


The ignition lock cylinder is worn out. after so much use, the brass key and tublers inside the lock wears due to filings that build up inside of the lock. When too much filings builds up, it makes the tumbler pins hang up inside. the upper portion needs to be disassembled to replace the lock cylinder. And of course, you will have a different key overall for your new ignition lock Good luck..
