Look at the base of the steering colum on its topside and locate the ignition switch. Thhere are no electrics at the key. The actual switch is operated by a rod by the keypart. The switch is sticking or the linkage to it is out of whackGood Luck.

Gear shifter is in Park, but dash reads it's in Reverse. Car won't turn over because it is in Reverse now.


You have to locate where the park ignition switch is located. Some are on the transmission and some are in the column under the dash. It probably got moved.

I put the wrong octane in my '08 wrx sti


all impreza recommends high ROM.
although 99ron or 100ron is recommended, some uses unleaded for non-turbo and of course notice a sligth defference in performance using high ROM fuel.
in your case is the reverse, means does't need to drain for a change.

You are going to have to have you ignition tumbler replaced. (Talk about insult to injury!) It sounds like Repo-man slammed in a new tumbler to snatch your rex and didn't quite get it in right.
Good luck!

Transmission


Have him ensure that EVERYTHING lines up EXACTLY just right. It helps to try to put the transaxle back in the right spot if it is actually in gear....... he can actually also try to have someone just tap the key to turn it over a bit as he tries to put it back in. This may line it all back up right.
