Try jiggling the shifter into park, and turning the wheel back and forth, it may be a dog in the tumbler in which case you'll need to change out the ignition lock.

89 T-BIRD WONT START, TURNS OVER, THEFT LIGHT BLINKING, OWNER LOST KEYS, HAD NEW KEY CUT STILL WONT RUN


I would go after the door lock first. Older fords have a switch on the door lock that disables the alarm. They tend to break and fall though. I have replaced them with a momentary on/ff switch.But the alarm would go off when opening the door. On some older ones(85,87)(no keypad) I could disconnect the security module and it did just fine.

I have a 1999 nissan Altima i can unlock the doors


The 1999 Nissan Altima was designed with three different methods for opening the door locks. The ignition key will unlock all of the doors by inserting the key into the keyhole and twisting it clockwise. You can unlock the doors with the remote control supplied with the vehicle by pressing the left circular button with the symbol of the open padlock on it. Finally, you can unlock the doors from the inside by pressing forward on the armrest lock button, which has a symbol of a key on it.

Every time I try to turn the key, it won't turn. The steering wheel is NOT locked. Is my ignition switch gone bad? I have a 2002 Nissan altima


The key is worn out. Take the key and your VIN number. Located in the windshield drivers side at the bottom or on the drivers door or in the door jam . Take them to the dealer and they will cut u a new key.

Hi. I recently lost my car key and I'm wondering if I would be able to knock out the ignition switch and start it that way. Is this possible with a 1993 altima?


Only in the movies, I'm afraid. Does one key do everything on this car? I believe it does. If so, remove the lock from the glove box, if it has one, and take it to a locksmith to make you a key. Any easily removable lock cylinder on the car will do also, such as the trunk lock.

1993 Nissan Altima The security light is blinking and the car wont turn over. it has a good battery. Is the flashing security light preventing the car from turning over?


Yes, the security system shuts power to the starter and fuel pump. You can try disarming by unlocking and locking the doors the power door locks switch (depends on model). Place the key in the ignition and set to ON, ALL doors closed!! Cycle the locks using the power locks button on the driver's door "lock" then "unlock" if this doesnt work, try same method with the ignition OFF. Otherwise your security system is malf.

I cant turn the ignition or move the steering wheel on my 2003 nissan altima. When I insert the key I get the usual sound but I cant turn the key at all, and the steering wheel seems like its stuck.


i think there is a ignition problem , might try replacing it , of course you cant turn the steering if the key wont turn , its a theft prevention device.

96Nissan Sentra Drivers side door/trunk locks broken


my 97 had the same problem. if the key fits the lock and will turn the lock but the lock wont open the door then your problem lies in the linkage between the door lock cylinder and the locking mechanism.

if the key fits the lock and the lock wont turn at all, this is what happened to me, then your lock is seized. Ive actually seen this on alot of 95-99 sentras it seems to be some sort of design flaw. what I had to do was to replace the lock cylinder and locate a new key. the locks from a dealer are a little pricy so i went around to salvage yards, every nissan sentra from said year range door locks were all seized, I even tried the 200sx as its the same car but a 2 door, same problem. luckily i found out that the 94 nissan altimas have the same door locks so I dismantled the inside door panel of said altima and snagged both front door lock cylinders. i also got lucky as the key was still in the ignition, replaced both locks and got a key for about 20 bucks. depending on your problem you might need new lock cylinders

Nissan presage central locking


make sure the trunk is locked and the ignition is off.
the altima will not lock if the key is in the ignition.
it may think there is a key in the ignition because the switch is bad.

2002 Nissan Altima windows roll down by themselves w/no key in


You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.
