I'd recomend you buy a new ignition lock cylinder and put in it, they usually don't cost that much. If your key is in there and you can turn it, it will be a piece of cake to change it out.

2007 volvo v50 key stuck in ignition vehicle totally shut down


It is best to call a locksmith, unless you know how to take apart the ignition tumbler and put the assemly locks in the correct order. It sounds like the key tumbler hold in broke and all the tumblers are loose and causing the key to be stuck. If you want to hurry the job for the locksmith and save money, buy the key tumbler assembly for your vehicle for the locksmith to install. Otherwise he will have to make the trip to buy the assembly, which in turn costs you more money. Mechanic shops can replace key tumblers too but when it is stuck in the column, it takes a lot of effort to remove if they are unskilled.

Key will not go onto the ignition. looks like there is a little peg in there. how do I fix?


It should go without saying that it is not possible to provide a diagnosis of your issue without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle.
That being said, it sounds like someone tried to jimmy your ignition to steal your car! You may need to have a locksmith extract whatever was jammed into the ignition switch, and possibly replace the ignition tumbler.

Wiring diagram for the ignition switch on a 2000 chevy s10 ?


Unfortunately, you will not be able to do that. The key and tumbler are an intricate part of the vehicles "anti-theft system. If the ignition switch or tumbler is broken it will have to be replaced and the theft code relearned. When the key is turned in the tumbler, the switch reads the key code and sends the code to the BCM. The BCM verifies the code is correct and sends a start message to the ECM and allows the engine to start. With out that code verification, the engine will not start.

How do you change the ignition barrel? the key doesn't turn and i was told the tumblers inside broke i took off the cover to get at it.


On most Fords, you must insert the key and turn to run position then push a little pin underneath the ign lock cyl. However if you cant turn the key at all, you have no choice but to drill out the lock cyl. Becareful because you dont want to go too far. There is a hardened piece at the end where the key goes in, once that is gone the cyl drills out nicely. When the hole is big enough the tumblers will fall out and you can remove the lock cyl.

My 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what


OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

Ingnition tumbler broke cant start


If the key won't start it; it might not be the key ignition, but rather; the ignition that has a stem that goes from the key ignition down on the steering colunm. However, you can get key ignitions for them, or buy the whole steering colum then take the key ignition out of it. But, I would suggest more information is needed before I can conclude that it is just the key ignition. Hope this help~!
