Car will not acept key

take key out of console. Then push down fairly hard on the insert-turn key area, it goes down about 1/2 inch----, while ---,,taking your other hand--push your finger into the base where the key would be--push down lightly your finger will go about 3 inches past the base-down to the bottom.

slowly pull your finger out ,, release pressure on the insert key -turn key area to the front of the key base area..

Now ,,put the key in the console key holder -turn to the right -Kazooom you are good for go. !

If this does not work ,,loosen the negative battery cable,with key in console ,disconnect for 30 seconds,, replace cable.. try to start . If not starting do the above procedure again as the computer memory is now blank.

Best bet,,BEFORE disconnecting any battery connection put the key in the console turn to the right, short of cranking the starter.Keep the key in this position
Then Disconnnect the battery--

When battery is reconnected, wait 3 minutes, then try the key for starting this usually works wonders. Doors must be closed,,, foot on brake pedal when starting..

Key will not turn past acc, will unlock steering wheel but won't turn to start.

Depending on the model car it sounds like the cylinder lock is bad, something broke apart inside the lock but i have seen the ignition switch also break apart, you will need to remove the cylinder and see if its the cylinder or the switch itself, good day.

I have a 2001 Kia Sirento and a small piece of the key broke inside the ignition key and i can't get it to move or start..How do you take out the ignition apart?

This area does not come apart without a key, even so, not very apart. Usually, you replace the whole thing...easier, but might need a locksmith to get the old one out, without a key..

Can't remove ignition key. I can start it, drive it, park it (and make sure the shift lever is in park), turn the car off, but the Key will not go past the ACC position when I turn it counter clockwise.

either you have a problem with the cable that connects the gear lever to the ignition or the steering lock has broke inside.But i seem to think that its more likely to be the cable

The key wont turn at the final point to crank the car, last year my tumble broke, i had it fixed but when it broke i couldnt move the key at all, its not doing thay this time, 2 days ago i went to the...

Not an exact solution, but perhaps information that might lead to one.

1.Replaced the tumblers? I believe I would replace the entire ignition switch this time. It's my belief that the body of the ignition switch is worn inside, and will keep damaging the tumblers.

2.Do you have a tilt steering wheel? It's best to keep the steering column in straight line when starting the car, then tilt the wheel to where you want, after the car is started. When the steering column is in a tilted position, it puts undue strain on the ignition key switch, and the mechanism the ignition key switch operates, on GM vehicles.

This mechanism, consists of a half moon gear on the ignition key switch, that turns inside a 'Planetary' gear. I used the term 'Planetary', as the gear shape is hard to describe. It resembles an oblong loop, shaped like the number 9, with gear teeth on the inside bottom of the loop. This 'Loop' rotates, when the gear teeth of the ignition key switch, engage the teeth on the loop, and pushes a rod, or retracts the rod. The rod goes down the side of your steering column, and turns on, or turns off an ignition switch, located at the bottom left side of the steering column.

Having the steering wheel tilted, puts a strain on the ignition key switch internals, the oblong loop can break, and/or gear teeth can be stripped off.

Key broke off in column

If you can get it to turn tothe on position (wait to start position) you should be able to locate the lock pin in the lock cylinder (may have to pull off lower plastic part of column to access) push up on the pin with a small punch or drill bit (with ignition in on position) and pull out the lock cylinder assembly. Be careful, there may be a gear inside that should come out with lock cylinder, use caution when installing new cylinder to make sure it is installed in the proper positon. Hope this helps.
