I have a 2005 convertible. The key apparently

I have a 2005 convertible. The key apparently only works the ignition. I just found this out. It sounds like the door lock lever slides when I turn the key in the door key hole but it won't open. Is there a trick.

If you remove the door panel, you will see that the key hole mechanism is actually connected to the latch with a metal rod.
The metal rod is attached with plastic clips.
One of the clips probably broke and the key hole is no longer attached to the latch.

something is heating up it could be the ignition relay or a bad ignition switch. relay can over heat and stop working this would take some time to cool down again, ignition can do the same some times you can feel the heat on the key when removed.

Went to start my jeep, and the key just spun around. accesories are on, and i can't turn them off...? do i need a new ignition lock??


Absolutely! The only way to ensure your ignition switch will work properly again (even if you are able to get the key back to off and the accessories turn off) is to replace the switch. I hope you found this solution to solve your problem and wish you all the best. Take care!

Ignition switch 2005 pontiac sunfire


I had this problem on my daughters 2004 sunfire. I found a new switch on ebay and tried to do it myself. I found a website that had instructions. I dont remember what it was but you can find it if you look hard enough. I just followed the instructions. I had to remove the cover under the steering wheel where your knees are. then I tried everything to pop it out but couldn't. It said to drill out a pin(key type thing) so I really looked at the ignition switch(the new switch helped me see how it worked better) and found what they were talking about then just started drilling, I admitt that I thought I was really messing the thing up but I was out of options at that point, I broke about 4 or 5 bits because of the impossible angle, oh yeh I bought a right angle drill to do the job. I just found the artical. You only need this if your key wont turn the ignition. I forgot about that. Well give it a try its not as hard as it seems and I did a little damage but it didnt affect the ignition operation.

Engine light on and car shaking unbelievably


these are extremely high maintanance vehicles. is the engine lite flashing or on solid? 1.8turbo? would suspect misfires in the engine. (scan for codes) spark plugs, ign. coils and poss ignition module are the first things that come to mind. euro's are fun to drive; nothing like it, however it does come with a price. everything seems to be over-engineered. just my opinion and experience.

If you replaced the coils the spark plugs should also be change. The plugs are more than likely bad.

2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Steering Wheel column locked...key goes in but does not start the car....can't move wheel... Wheel is not straight....will not move even if jimmed..car totally locked....up..


All you need is two inexpensive things to fix this. 1. Hammer and 2. WD-40. First, put the key in the ignition and tap it with the hammer. (this should unlock the steering wheel and the iginition) Second, spray some WD-40 in the key opening on the ignition, then put the key in again and proceed to tap it some more with the hammer. (WHEN I SAY TAP THE HAMMER I DO NOT MEAN HIT IT WITH FULL FORCE)... Any who keep put WD-40 and tapping it until you can turn the key without the help of the hammer... (should be at least 4 times) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH TIME DEBRI BUILDS UP IN THE IGNITION, AND THIS CAUSES THE STEERING TO LOCK UP WHEN YOU PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. THE HAMMER UNLOCKS THE SPRINGS IN THE IGNITION AND THE WD-40 CONVERTS THE DEBRI TO LIQUID SO IT CAN CLEAN THE IGNITION...

apparently steering colum lock. next time try turning your steering wheel to the left while turning the key in the ignition. don't stress the ignition. though if it isn't your stearing lock the last thing you want to do is bust up the or in come cases break your key off in there. Try turning the stearing wheel though. 99% of the time thats what it is.
