I have an Isuzu Rodeo and the key is stuck in the ignition any idea how to get it out? Year 2000


replace the whole ignition barrel with new key and get key programmed by dealer
can remove barrel and key by removing steering column covers turn ignition to on position and with small shank screw driver push in hole in outer top rear section of barrel assembly then pull out ignition lock barrel with key in it. fit new lock barrel and key, program new key into system and can get door lock barrels coded to suit new key or get code for old key and cut new key so it fits mechanical locks on the rest of the vehicle (just wont turn in ignition) 2 keys for vehicle.

I want to remove the ignition switch out of my 199 mercedes SL300


if its jammed you may be out of luck. the process is to turn the key to position 2 and put a set of pins in the 2 holes in the tumbler and remove. The only other way i know is to have it drilled out. A stealership may have better options. Either way yoou need a new tumbler with new key.

I HAVE A MERCEDEZ 190 AND THE KEYS ARE NOT TURNING IN IGNITION BARREL NOW THE STEERING IS LOCKED ALSO I HAVE TAKEN OUT IGNITION BARREL WITH STEERING COLOUM. i WOULD LIKE TO DISINGAGE THE IGNITION BARREL...


it is better to buy a new ignition barrel.it takes a special socket to get the screws out, once the screws are out they do not need to be replaced.buy new barrel,disconnect negative battery cable,disconnect wires from barrel assembly, remove barrel from colum. first take vin# to dealership parts department to get correct barrel assembly, the keys with new assembly will fit doors and trunk

How to get key out that is stuck in ignition


Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out

Remove ignition switch will not turn


you can access the ignition switch from underneath the dash, but I found it easier to remove the steering wheel, then the instrument cluster. There are two basic elements to the ignition switch. The part that usually breaks down first is the front section, where the key goes into. You have to remove the entire unit from its bracket. Unplug the wire loom from the back of the housing. I believe there are two screws holding both sections together. Remove the screws and replace the unit. Then re-assemble. BUT FIRST, BEFORE YOU START TAKING EVERYTHING APART, TRY USING ANOTHER KEY. YOU'RE DEALING WITH A 25 YEAR OLD CAR, AND POSSIBLY A 25 YEAR OLD KEY (which I can't imagine, but its possible). YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT TO SQUIRT A SHOT OF WD-40 INTO THE IGNITION'S KEY SLOT...THERE COULD BE A STUCK SPRING OR BLADE INSIDE. If all that fails, then start taking the ignition switch apart. Its a fairly easy proceedure, less than 30 mins....and the switch should cost less than $60.00 from MB.
