2005 honda civic ignition tumbler

I turned car off at gas pump, tried to stick the key in ignition. Key would no longer go into ignition. Something is wrong with the tumbler in the ignition. Had to have car towed. Need to know how to replace the key and tumbler assembly in detail. Thank you.

    Same thing happened to me, i started sliding the key in on an angle this worked for about a month or two and then the whole thing stopped working all together. it's in the dealership now, wasn't covered by warrenty. the cost to replace it is $620.00 CDN. Not fun.

Take it to a locksmith. You don't want to risk pulling it down yourself especially where the immobiliser harness is concerned, in addition Honda tumblers are really hard to source, the defectives ones will have to be removed. You need an experienced locksmith to do this.

Ignition wont turn

Hi Tammy, I'm glad to help

I've seen this a lot in Chrysler products. If you have a key and tumbler on the Impala, then here's a way to free it up but this is only temporary it will need to be replace. Take a can of lube and spray into where the key goes then put the key in the ignition and take something and hit on the end of the key while trying to turn it, sometimes this will free it up so you can drive it to the shop. NOTE: This will only work on the old key and tumbler style, if you have a WIN Module it will not work. Call the dealership and give them you VIN number and ask them if you have the Key and Tumbler style ignition or a WIN Module, now they may calls there's something different but if you have the tumbler style then it will work. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Tammy.

It isn't the steering lock?
If not, please check if you have a spare key. Does this work in a single shot? Then copy that key and use that.

Egine turns over, battery is good but the is no starting

could be starter possibly or ignition switch or key and tumbler or fuel pump there is so many possiblities, turn the key over and listen for the buzzing from the pump. if it has that then the fuel pump is working. you can hold the key in crank and see if it starts that would suggest key and tumbler or ignition switch.. if it is a standard you can try bomb starting it to see if it starts. if it does that means possibly starter

Honda civic 2004 key will not turn in ignition switch even after moving the wheel for the tires to loosen

First try another key if you have one. Second insert the key and while slightly turning it wiggle the key in a upward & downward motion. Often this will allow the key to turn. What you need to do to correct the problem (provided your key is not the problem) is to replace the ignition switch tumbler. It sounds like you only need the tumbler and not the entire switch which would include the steering wheel lock pin.

1995 honda civic the key gets stuck in the ignition only when its cold outside. In the summer all is good. I had the switch changed but all that did was make my 500 dollars poorer.

If it's just the ignition switch you had changed then you might just try spraying one shot of WD40 inside the tumbler (where your key slides in).
