My Honda Jazz 200, the key does not want to turn when we want to start the car


If the key wont turn at all, try pulling the steering wheel (hard) to either side while turning the key. Sometimes if the steering wheel locks in a certain position it will "lock" the ignition cylinder in place, and pulling away from the ignition will take the pressure off and allow it to move. IF this doesn't work, you may have a bad "ignition lock cylinder"

I have a ford focus 2003- today when I exited the car nothing was unusual..when I went to try to go to work the key will go in ignition but won't turn AT ALL. Anyone know what I can do to fix it?


your steering wheel has tension on it - are your front wheels parked against a curb or were you turning your steering wheel while you shut off the car? Try pulling hard left and turning the key. If that doesn't work, pull hard right while turning the key. You may have to pull really hard if you are a smaller person.

Ignition wont turn steering wheel locked


If the steering wheel was in a hard turn when the ignition was turned off and the key was pulled, maybe it's just in a bind. Put the key in the ignition and pull the steering wheel hard to the left, then to the right while trying to turn the ignition.

2010 Chrysler town and country - key stuck in ignition


I was able to force the key out by pulling very hard. There is a lock that keeps it from coming out and its not disengaging. I used a knife and trimmed down the sides of the key so it will pass by the lock without getting stuck. Now it works fine. The down (or myabe up) side is that the key can now be pulled out no matter which position its in. So if the car is running you can still pull it out. That can be a handy thing, but it can also lead to accidentally leaving it running I suppose. So far so good!

I have 2002 xg350 and the water pump went out and then rolled the timing belt off and bent the valves. Pulled the heads and had repaired. reassembled and it ran fine for 24 hrs. and then it popped code...


Hi

The ETS limp home valve may be on. Clean the throttle body and intake runners with intake cleaner with engine running. Then do a ETS initialization as follows:

ETS INITIALIZATION PRCEDURE:
Turn the ignition key to the ON position (for less than one second) and quickly turn the ignition key back to the OFF position.
Wait 10 seconds in off position.The ETS Module performs the INITIALIZATION process and at completion you will hear a click from under dash. Turn the key on for 1 second then start the vehicle.

Hope this helps - Steve

Hardly seems worth changing the lock cylinder, since it is not that easy.
Just be more careful turning the ignition off.
Put in an ignition indicator light on the dash if you have to.

Ignition


This is a simple fix.  Either the key is worn and you need a new key cut, or your ignition switch is worn and you need to replace it. Personally, I would start with a new key.  Before spending any money, try pulling on the steering wheel a little in both directions while turning the key.  I have seen steering locks prevent the key from turning on older cars.

Ignition


apparently steering colum lock. next time try turning your steering wheel to the left while turning the key in the ignition. don't stress the ignition. though if it isn't your stearing lock the last thing you want to do is bust up the or in come cases break your key off in there. Try turning the stearing wheel though. 99% of the time thats what it is.
