Question about 1996 BMW 318
I cant switch the engine off as the barrel seems locked on in the on position. i have disconnected the wiring switch at the opposite end of the barrel, that way i can turn the engine off using a screwdriver, but i must have the key inserted in the ignition barrel to switch the car on with the screwdriver.
The engine runs even when i take the key out of the ignition.
Had this problem myself recently and i had to remove steering wheel and side covers remove shear bolts from lock housing using a smal chisel that lets you lake of lock housing and steering lock to replace them your local bm dealer should be able to order the correct one to fit your key, your car will still run with key out but you have to insert it to start it.
