On a honda you have to push the key/lock inwards to turn/start the car( stops you turning the key when already running)and when you pull the key out it engages the steering lock..so without me actually turning the key i do not see you have a problem...

Noise of 2004 Volvo s40 2.4i


Cannot figure out what that part is, but it has a vacuum line connected. Therefore, it should not be functioning unless the engine is running. I would have to guess there is a wire crossed in the key cylinder. The presence of the key should activate the warning system and perhaps deactivate the security system. However, the engine system wiring comes in proximity to the warning wiring behind the ignition switch near the contact reel. It's possible you have a short in that area. I am posting access instructions from autozone.com.
CAUTION Models equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), use an inflatable air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column, and instrument panel, disable the SRS.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect battery cable.
  3. Remove steering wheel and air bag module. Refer to Steering Wheel removal and installation.
  4. Remove steering column covers. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Screws from lower coverClip mounting between the upper and lower coversLower steering column coverUpper steering column cover
  5. Remove the contact reel:
    1. Disconnect the left connector.
    2. Remove the screws.
    3. Remove the contact reel.

    2. Remove the screws.
    3. Remove the ignition switch.

Key goes into ignition with the greatest of ease. Sometimes wont start the car, sometimes will. Do i need a new ignition? Could this be expensive or maybe just something simple wrong? Car is 5 years old....


Could be 2 things first the ignition. 2nd the ignition switch. I would bet on the ignition switch. To access then remove the 3 phillips screw on the bottom of the column cover. If you can turn your key forward push the pin on the ignition housing. Ignition slides out. The ignition switch is on the left side of the column the small black box held in by 2 screws. If new ignition is needed buy one from the dealer or you will end up with different keys for the ignition & doors

Dealer cut a new key for Pilot but it won't work


If the key fits mechanically, and the lock turns, then the key has been cut correctly. However if it just won't start the vehicle, then the transponder chip within the key will need programming. The dealer should have the equipment to do this. Do not accept a key that does not start the car - and certainly don't pay unless it does.

Ignition switch will not turn off


Your ignition switch has piled up. Not the key and tumbler, the actual switch which is down at the bottom of your steering column. A rod that is connected to your key and tumbler pulls on the switch to start and stop your engine. You'll have to drop your steering column down to get at it, and replace the switch.
