Usually the key is either worn, but usually the steering is locked. To unlock the steering, muscle the steering one direction while turning the key with the other hand. Your other concern may be related to the first. For the shifter to be able to shift. The shift lock has to be activated. The way this happens is when the ignition is on and the brake is depressed or if the shift lock override button is depressed and shifted at the same time. This button is usually under a cover at the base od the shifter if a floor shifter. Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Air Bag Sensor light on & horn not working

Without knowing exactly what the air bag code is, coupled with the known fact that the horn is inoperative, my opinion for a viable solution is to replace the spiral cable or, as commonly called, the "clockspring". This device is the main wiring connection between the steering wheel and the wiring harness. If the circuit(s) open,due to a failure of the spiral cable, the air bag light will be on, the horn will not work,and , if you have a steering wheel Cruise control, it too may be inoperative. Best solution: replace the clockspring. Best advice: Get the airbag DTC's checked, and if you have an open in the driver side air bag circuit, the clockspring is def the culprit. Given that you had chassis work, your DTC just may be the front crash sensor, and the horn may just be unplugged, or bad, This is the best I can do for you, given the info that you have provided,
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to remove key lock cylinder


  • Insert your key in the ignition and turn the key to the "ACC," or "Accessories," position.

  • Insert a straightened paper clip into the small, circular slot to the left of the ignition slot.

  • Turn the key to the "Off" position.

  • Pull gently on both the paper clip and the key to slide the cylinder out of its slot. You can then remove the paper clip and pull the key out of the removed cylinder.

    Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


    IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

    It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

    ----------

    Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

    ---------

    But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

    -----------

    How do I remove the ignition lock on my 1998 Mazda Protege? Tumblers are stuck. Key won't go past accessory.


    if ou do not have the key, look at the replacement lock there'll be a tab which recesses when the key is turned to acc or on position. It is that tab which prevents you from removing lock cylinder it has to be forced into a recessed position or drilled to where the cylinder can removed. If u do then locate tab turn key to acc or on and push tab to recessed position and remove cylinder.

    You need to use the main regular key. Not keyless remote... LOCK THE VECHELE DRIVER DOOR WITH KEY, THEN UNLOCK DRIVER DOOR WITH KEY. Once you have done this place key in ignition try to start car, and security problem should be resolved.

    My key is locked in the ignition and won't turn. Have moved the sterring wheel but still can't start vehicle


    Toyota trucks are nortorious with ingnition problems,spay some wd-40 in the key hole as best you can and move key up and down in rocking motion and turn wheel back and forth as you do this and hopfuly it will turn. if it dont than get the whole ingintion out and try to buy a new one, Ebay perhaps might have one more reasonable for price.

    1994 z71 truck key stuck in acc position will not turn to be removed can turn key to start, truck runs ok remove ignition fuse to turn off is the key lock Solenoid on the coloum the issue


    The ignition lock cylinder is worn out. after so much use, the brass key and tublers inside the lock wears due to filings that build up inside of the lock. When too much filings builds up, it makes the tumbler pins hang up inside. the upper portion needs to be disassembled to replace the lock cylinder. And of course, you will have a different key overall for your new ignition lock Good luck..
