Ignition on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee is locked, how do I unlock the ignition? Keys goes in ignition, door chim works when key is in ignition. But the key won't turn it's stuck.

tap the ignition lock cylinder with the plastic end of a scrwedriver (with the key removed). then insert the key and try to start. Try this several times. If you get it to turn immediately replace the igntion lock cylinder. The cylinder needs to be in the on position in order for the lock button to be depressed so that the cylinder can be removed from the housing.

If you still can't get it to turn than you will have to drill out the lock button in order to get the old lock cylinder out. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you have some experience and understand what you are doing.

The lock button can be accessed by removing the lower steering column cover.

The key that goes to the Volkswagen doesn't seem to enter at sometime. Almost like something is jammed in the ignition. After about 10 minutes of trying to force it into the ignition, it works, if we're...

i would inquire at a dealer about whether or not the lock cylinder is covered under warranty. my first and last repair method is a bit of graphite on the key and in the lock cylinder, if that does not work then a new lock cylinder is in order. these inevitably have their last moment at night, in adverse weather, a million miles from home. at that time you will rue the decision to not spend a couple hundred to get it fixed correctly. an ounce of prevention

I have a 2004 ford focus that has a chip in the ignition key. the key cylinder on the column is bad and needs to be replaced. it can be bought at local parts store but can i program it or does the dealer...

The new ignition key cylinder will only need programming if it comes assembled with a key. If the cylinder comes in a kit (type that ford dealer sells) that lets you build the cylinder to match your key, then no programming is needed.
I hope this helps you

Door lock cylinder...

You'll need a new ignition switch from the dealer. Removing it and replacing my rating of 6 - 10. This means unless you have a Bentleys repair manual you wouldn't know exactly where to place 3/64th drill bit in order to push the locking tab in the cylinder after all the trim is removed.

But what i read afterwards is there is a locking mechanism in the ignition it is a white thing that slides so you cant get your key in this can be moved with a a small aharp object ant you can then get your key in!!!
