Get another key made, sounds like your key is either a new cut that is slightly out of alignment or it is an old key that is worn. If that doesn't fix it then you may need a new ignition column (tumbler). Try your key(s) on your door locks and your trunk lock to see if the same problem exists.

I have a 1991 300e merecedes and i drove it all week no problem now i cannot get the key to turn in the ignition i tried moving the steering wheel jiggling the shifter and moving the key around even...


when locksets start wearing out sometimes the key will only start the car with a certain side up. also you can try tapping the key when it is in and see if that works. It's probably time for a new lockset and key

S3 light starts blinking after driving around for a little while. I also notice the speedometer will stop working and then starts back working. When I turn off the ignition this clear the blinking S3...


The transmission's electronic control module is most likely bad I had a 1989 prelude that had the same issue I had to replace the TCM on it after the S3 light came on but my problem was a problem shifting, if you have a electronic speed sensor for the trans. and not a speedometer cable the speed sensor may be bad if you have the cable type change the TCM (transmission control module)

All electronic accessories work when key is in


test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

How do I get a code from computer in 91 honda prelude


UNDER THE GLOVEBOX INSIDE THE PASSENGER KICKPLATE NEAR THE FLOOR IS A TWO WIRE CONNECTOR BEHIND THE PANEL. JUMP THIS CONNECTOR WITH A PAPER-CLIP AND TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH ON AND WATCH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO COUNT THE FLASHES. ONE LONG FLASH AND THREE SHORT ONES INDICATES A CODE OF 13. IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE CODE THEN IT WILL FOLLOW THE FIRST CODE. THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR TROUBLES I AM SURE. LET ME KNOW. GOOD LUCK. P.S. IF YOU WANT TO ERASE THE CODE(S) THEN DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL FOR 10 SECONDS. BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO RESET THE CLOCK AND PRESETS.

The ignition key cylinder and ignition switch are two different parts. Which one did you change? Your problem is the ignition switch not the key cylinder if that's what you changed.

I have a 1991 Honda and the key will not turn in the ignition


you need to replace the ignition switch- most cars run around $25. they are fairly simple to replace.
remove the shroud that covers the steering wheel, turn the key to ACC, using a small flat head screwdriver, press the release button- usually located on the top right side, the switch should pull out with no problem. make sure the new switch is turned to ACC, and slide it in the slot, make sure the new switch works before you reassemble everything.
