Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
My key will not turn in the ignition. What could this be? I tried to move the steering wheel and the tilt. Nothing is helping and both keys are oding the same thing.
U are going to have to replace the ignition key lock assembly, a pin is damaged, this just happens, no paticular reason i have found yet.

There's also a steel rod from the key tumbler that goes into a switch . if it's not the key switch it's the switch deep inside ,i had to bypass 1 once lol just a lame saftey feature u dont need / remember most vehicles these days have more wiring than the first space shuttle and you dont need 80% of it . it's all saftey features that loop back and kill the circuit ...chop it out and install a toggle switch and a push button / old school then u can hide the toggle switch where you want it and the push button as well . all else fails get a different steering column.but do try and change the tumbler first ,you get a new key :)
