Your ignition switch is bad. They are not hard to replace, just time consuming because the steering wheel has to be removed. Autonzone will loan you the tools you need for no charge, you just pay a deposit and get it back when the tool is returned.

Dont force the key. I fforced the key on mine and it started but then I had to pop the hood and disconnect the alternator and battery to get it to shut off.

MY KEY DON'T TURN THE IGNITION, IS LOCK


The solution may be just to grab the steering wheel and turn to left or right, some slight resistance may be felt as you turn, and at the same time try to turn the key in the ignition.

You don't say what kind of vehicle we are talking about, but it is safe to assume your ignition switch needs to be replaced.

Program new key for montana


As long as you still have one that works, it's easy.
1) Insert the "original" (working) Key.2) Turn the Ignition to ON (RUN), but do NOT start the engine. Turn the Ignition OFF and remove the key.3) Within 15 seconds insert the new key and turn the Ignition to the ON (just to ON, not to START) position. The Security indicator should light up for about 2 seconds to indicate that the new key has been programmed.
At that point, it should work. I don't know how many different keys you can get the Theft Deterrent Module to recognize; there may be a limit.
If you're don't have a working key now, it's much more time-consuming;the procedure to get the TDM to recognize a different key takes about 30 minutes when you don't have an old one that works.

Then close the door and slowly insert the key 6 times within 10 seconds but do not go to fast and when the flashers blink then turn the key to the ACC potion and press one of the buttons on the remote.

Reset oil change for a 2008 dodge aveneger


To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn’t come on yet), you’ll need to turn your key to on (but don’t start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don’t start the engine!) The display panel will count down from “------“ to “-“Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed. After this step, you are done.
