Steering wheel lock.
Turn the steering away from lock position, hold the steering wheel then turn the key .

No, it will not turn an inch, but slightly to relief the pressure off the key ignition housing, or wiggling it while turning the key.

My ignition swithch wont turn to off position. It did several times now it will not.


take it to your local mechanic and he will most likely change the key socket its a sepparate part this should come with a new set of keys or the pins on the lock can be made to fit your old key its frequent when cars get old. A similar problem is that the key can be removed when the car is still running.

Sunfire 1997 key not turning in ignition.


Had a similar problem with my Chevy Cargo Van..tumblers in igition old and worn, also noted key/wheel problem like yours. Be extra careful about putting in Park, keeping tension off steering wheel, and being sure key goes in smoothly. Sometimes you just have to jiggle the key and take tension off the wheel. (Beats replacing the ignition locks, etc.)

If the steering wheel lock is not holding the cylinder, then yes the key may be worn or the tumblers damaged in the lock. Did you try a spare key ?

I need to take out old ignition lock cylinder without key on 1989 toyota camry le -lost keys-bought locksmart replacement but it says old has to be in acc position to remove-


This is what the tech manual says.....

Ignition Lock/Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before working on the vehicle. CAUTION
    Some models covered by this manual may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an 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, as described in Section 6.
  2. Remove the lower steering column cover. Unfasten the ignition switch connector under the instrument panel.
  3. Remove the screws which secure the upper and lower halves of the steering column cover.
  4. Turn the lock cylinder to the ACC position with the ignition key.
  5. Push the lock cylinder stop in with a small, round object (cotter pin, punch, etc.). NOTE: On some vehicles, it may be necessary to remove the steering wheel and combination switch first.
  6. Withdraw the lock cylinder from the lock housing while depressing the stop tab.
  7. To remove the ignition switch, unfasten its securing screws and withdraw the switch from the lock housing. To install:
  8. Align the locking cam with the hole in the ignition switch and insert the switch into the lock housing.
  9. Secure the switch with its screw(s).
  10. Make sure both the lock cylinder and column lock are in the ACC position. Slide the cylinder into the lock housing until the stop tab engages the hole in the lock.
  11. Install the steering column covers and connect the ignition switch wiring.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable.

Recode a key 4 bmw 318i cenral locking


To carry out this procedure you need to have one working key and one key which requires programming. It may help sometimes to hold the key close to the rear view mirror as this is where the sensor is located in most models. 1. With both keys, get in the car and close all windows and doors. 2. Put working key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (the accessories should turn on) (try also position 2) 3. Turn the key back to position 0 and take the key out of the ignition. 4. Using the working key, hold down the unlock button, press the BMW logo (lock button) 3 times, and release the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock. 5. With the new key, hold down the unlock button and press the BMW logo (lock button) 3 times and let go of the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock and you're done!! If not working try the following PREPARATION 1. Close all doors, trunk, hood and sunroof. 2. The security system must be in 'disarm' mode. The key must be removed from the ignition key slot. ENTER CODE LEARNING MODE 3. Open trunk and leave it opened. 4. Open the drivers door and sit in the drivers seat. 5. Close the drivers door. 6. Cycle the ignition switch 5 times between the 'OFF' position and position 2,(ignition 'ON', all dash warning lamps will illuminate). The red status LED will illuminate continuously, and the siren will 'chirp' once, to indicate that the code-learning mode has been initiated. ?Do No start the engine.? The Ignition switch cycling in step #6 must be performed within 10 seconds. The sequence in steps #1-#6 must be performed within 45 seconds. REGISTER/DELETE ID CODE(S) 7. Open drivers door, (remain seated in the drivers seat) 8. Close the drivers door. 9. Press and release any button on the remote you wish to register in the system. The status LED will shut off momentarily to indicate that one code has been registered. 10. Repeat steps 7 thru 9 to register the three ID codes. It is possible for the system to memorize a total of 4 different ID codes. As a new code is initialized into the memory, the oldest code is automatically deleted. If you had lost your remotes and wished to delete the lost remote ID codes from the memory, you could initialize the ID codes from a newly purchased replacement transmitter four times thereby deleting the previous ID codes from the system memory. EXITING CODE - LEARNING MODE: 11. Open drivers door, and exit from the vehicle, leaving the door opened. 12. Close trunk. 13. Close drivers door. The LED will turn off and the siren will 'chirp twice. 14. The initialization procedure is now completed; Test all remotes to confirm operation. If this doent work your alarm/central lock needs to be reset
