    Re: 1993 Acura Legend Ignition Switch OES Genuine
    You need to replace the Ignition Switch. The switch got worn out over time, if you know how to use the solder you would repair it and save $60. or order one from here http://www.car-stuff.com/1993acuralegend...

    It is not difficult to install a new switch. You must have a small 90 degree Philip screw driver.

1999 Volvo S40 cannot remove key


What make vehicle ? Most all vehicles have a safety system .Don't try an force anything you'll break it !
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. They also have this on column mounted shifters !

Lost my key and cant statr my car how do i use a scewdriver in the ignition to start it?


you can't use a screwdriver in the ignition switch to start the engine,if you try you will most likely destroy it & have to replace it,( the ignition switch) depending on the model of your vehicle you may be able to go to a dealer & buy a replacement key,if you have an owners manual for the vehicle the key number may be in it otherwise you might have to get a locksmith to see if they can cut you another key.......hope this helps......cheers.
