A quick simple solution would be to try to start the car by sticking a flat-head screw driver like a key. A more expensive solution would be to find another ignition assembly with key from a junk yard and replace the whole thing. An even more expensive option would be to buy the ignition assembly and keys from a parts store or from the nearest Ford dealership. Hopefully this helps to FixYa problem!

05 maxima put in reverse backed up pulled it forward went to back up acts like it wants to go but slips real bad


torque converter solenoid requires replacement. Look it up on Youtube for detailed replacement... it's not difficult, just be clean and have both a new think blade paint spatula and safety razor blade handy to scrape away the old gasket once you remove the old part. Use Simple Green to clean up the area all around it before you remove the old part... cleanliness is the key to prevent dirt and any old gasket remnants from ruining the new part your about to install.

How do you remove a stuck cv from inside at trans axle


Every one I've replaced was stuck. You need to jerk it out. I've pried carefully with a flat blade screwdriver and I've ised a small pry bar as well. Some have a ring on the end that keeps it from pulling out. You need to keep jerking at it and once the ring lines up it will just about fall out. Check and see if the new axle has a ring on it as well. Sometimes you need to move it from the old one onto the new one.

How do I program my key fob to a 94 Olds 98 regency?


Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.

Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?

If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).

THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar:
If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys.
1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys.
2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside.
3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car.
4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running.
5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit.
6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done.
7 turn car off and reassemble keys.
8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.

(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)

Remove broken key from egnition


Hi

Use needle-nose pliers to pull the broken key out, if there is enough of it sticking out of the ignition to grab. Put a little melted wax, Museum Putty or Super Glue on the pliers before you grab the key.

Make sure that the ignition is in the "neutral" position so that the tumblers are not gripping the key. If it is in the locked position, insert a thin hacksaw blade--with the teeth facing up--next to the broken key, and turn the ignition to the "neutral" position.

Pull gently up on the hacksaw blade. If you are lucky, the teeth will grab the key and slide it out. Try this with the hacksaw blade behind the key, and again on top of the key. Most keys have a groove on them that the hacksaw blade can grab, so wiggle and twist the hacksaw blade around and see if you can feel it catch the key.

Try using the hacksaw blade and the pliers together--pushing with the blade and pulling with the pliers.

Cut or break a six- to eight-inch piece off of a wire coat hanger and use your pliers to fashion a small hook at the end. Slide this into the ignition behind the key and try to grab it. If that doesn't work, insert the wire in front of the key and try again.

Spray a little cooking spray or WD-40 into the ignition and try again with the hacksaw blade. Remember to try both in front of and behind the key, and to wiggle the blade. Do not spray the lubricant before trying the pliers or wire, because now your key is not only stuck, it is slippery.

Call a locksmith if the above steps do not work. Do it before you get too frustrated, because it is much cheaper to replace a key than it is to replace a key and a shattered ignition.

How to remove wiper arm


Hello,

Please follow the steps below to remove or replace the wiper arm:
  1. With the hood closed, turn the wipers on, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to the off position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper condition and you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hood to gain access)
  2. Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade

  4. Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation

How do I re-attach my wiper arms?


Start off by putting a cardboard box over the windshield and under the wiper arm to avoid breaking or scratching the windshield.You need to turn on the wiper switch and then turn on the key. When your wiper arm is pointing to the top of the windshield turn off the key to keep it there. Now, depending on the type of wiper arm you have ( bayonet, shepherd hook, L pin or straight arm ) depends on how to remove old arm. Shepherd hook is the most common and has a lock on the blade that needs to be pressed in to release the blade from the arm. Now slide the blade toward the windshield, off of the cradle for the arm. Swivel the cradle so you can slip the blade off from the inside of the arm and reverse procedure to install. The Bayonet, L pin and straight arm styles usually require a small flat blade screwdriver pushed between the body of the blade and the arm, then twist to release blade. Some blades also have a lock that will need to be pressed to release blade from arm, then twist screwdriver to remove. Hope this helps!!

1985 corvette key stuck in ignition so cant change it out


You can remove the ignition module as a whole and Dis-Assemble it to remove the tumblers and get the key back that way. If your replacing the Ignition set anyway once you get the module removed you can install the new on and toss the old one. You can have the doors and trunk re-keyed by a locksmith to match the new key. Make sure you remove any key chain you have attached to the ignition key that is stuck and follow the removal steps for the ignition module. Should be fine.
