The ignition lock cylinder exploded in the housing and thats why the key is stuck,there is a little square panel under the steering column pop that off and push on the white knob and that will let the key turn and hopefully come out,,and then all ok,but you still need a new switch

Need to reset the anti-theft system on a 2010 Dodge Avenger.


the only things ive heard is if you insert the key into the ignition and turn it to on position and leave it for ten min that might reset it or you can try reseting the whole computer by turning the key to on and unhooking the neg battery cable then the pos cable then holding the breaks down or the horn down to drain the remaing juice the engine holds even after the battery is diconnected leave it unhooked with the key turned to on for about 15 min then turn the key off and hook the battery back up see if that works bud!

I have a 2007 saturn ion, the battery is dead do to forgetting to shut the headlights off, now the key is stuck in the ignition and no way to open the trunk to get to the battery. Is there anyway to the...


Well, the first answer is right but doesn't solve the problem and the second answer is wrong as the battery is in the trunk.

Just had the exact same problem. Battery dead on 2005 ion due to head lights left on which causes the key to stick in ignition.

Could not get to the battery in trunk because key stuck and power trunk switch also dead (no battery power, catch 22).

Solution: I hooked up a battery charger to the positive terminal under the hood by the fuse box and the negative to the engine block and charged it for 20 minutes. You could also jump it using the same terminals.

The security on my 1993 Grand Cherokee will not turn off


I may be able to help if you havent fixed it yet. I believe I had the same/similiar issue...

I would make sure all of the doors were locked with auto lock button on inside of door, then I would shut the door so all doors were locked from pressing the inside auto lock button. then I would use my key to unlock the trunk, open the trunk and close it leaving it unlocked. then i would use the key to unlock the drivers door and the security would reset... if not then unhook the battery for a few minutes then hook back up and see if that works.. glgl

CAR ALARM


We have a similar problem - it doesn't go off when we open the door, but sometimes the alarm light stays on after we open the door and then when we put the key in the ignition to start the car the alarm goes off. The only thing we've found to shut the alarm off is to get out of the car and put the key in the trunk manually and open the trunk. Then after we've opened and closed the trunk, the alarm disables and then we can unlock the doors (which I believe is the step where the alarm disables) and then we can start the car without a problem.
