If it is a mechanical problem, then the problem is likely to be the lock barrel that is worn. However, if the key looks in bad shape, then yes it can be cut to code, and the original transponder chip used in the new key.
Not all places can do this, but a main dealer would, but would be more expensive.

How can I get the key out of the ignition when I try to turn the car off?


hi do you mean when you turn off the ignition the key won't come out of the lock? .. is it the same if you gently rock the steering wheel right and left whilst trying to remove the key? .. does the steering turn into the security lock position? .. have you always had this problem since you bought the car? .. try gently pushing the key into the lock and then holding the key ring / key fob try to withdraw the key whilst taking the pressure off it by gently rocking the steering. hope you also have a spare key to to use instead of putting the same key back once you have taken it out .. if it does come out try lubricating the lock with a little 3 in 1 oil before using the spare key.

Where can i find a gear change key for my 2000 ford fusion


Hi, To get the problem solved you will need to have a new ignition installed. The new ignition will have it's own key. You can try to replace it yourself but I warn you qualified mechanics can have real problems with this so I highly recommend taking it to a professional. The ools alone will cost more then a mechanic. I suggest you purchase the part and take the car with the part to a Professional.

Thanks for choosing FIXYA

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.


To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

You may be using a worn key. If you recieved more than one key at purchase, try a different one.If you are still having a problem, then you will need to replace your lock cylinder. This is not a big job as long as you can still get it to turn in to the on position. Don't wait too long, because if it is a bad cylinder, and it gets bad enough that you can no longer turn it to the on position, then the cylinder must be drilled out. Try a different key first, if the problem remains, then get it to a qualified mechanic right away, and have the lock cyliner replaced. Not a very expensive repair as long as you can still get it in the on position.

He's trying to scam you to get out of having to replace a key they programmed incorrectly. The only other possibility is that the ignition switch itself is faulty since that is what sends the signal to the ECM that a proper key is installed. Since it works with the original key that is unlikely.

1992 Honda Accord starting problem


you need to get a honda dealer to code the key(s)to the car.otherwise it will turn over and die each time you try to start it.(some cars have matching ecm/ignition switches)it would have been easier to tell your local honda dealer the chassis no and they would then have supplied the keys to your car.then coded them.
