1991 Eclipse Ignition lock

Hey all,

The igintion on my 91 Eclipse has just recently started locking every time I try to turn the key, even when the steering wheel isn't locked. It seems to run well once it finally turns. I tried a new key (my old one became a little twisted from the locked ignition) but it still doesn't work. Any suggestions on what the problem is?

Thanks so much!

Sounds like the ignition barrel is starting to go the only thing really to do is either wait for it to completely die and then replace it or just replace it now

Replace ignition key cylinder from 91 Honda accord


the ignition key cylinder comes as a single unit with the ignition lock assembly. if you want to use the same key as before take the entire lock assembly to a lock smith and they would be able to rekey the tumblers to match your old key.

1991 S10 Ignition Lock Cylinder will not turn with key. Had new key made. Still, the ignition switch will not turn. It is on a 1991 Chevy S-10.


Hi,
This may or may not help. Is key hanging up in cylinder? If so, spray some wd 40 or graphite into the switch. Also, if steering wheel is turned fully in either direction, then your steering wheel lock may be preventing you from truning key. Try shaking the wheel while turning the key. Lastly your ignition switch may be shot.

How to remove broken key from the ignition switch of a 1996 Mitsubishi eclipse Turbo?


e
if it's broken off just to the inside of the ignition, try using two sewing needles. use them like prybars one on each side. even try a strong magnet. duct tape pushed into the lock to the key might even work. if know one knows but you and you can still start and lock and unlock the car why worry.

Also can review this TIPS GUIDE

I hope helped you (remember rated this help) Good luck.

I have a 91 honda accord and something may be wrong with the ignition switch. When I put the key in the key won't move either way like the switch is jammed


Yeah, over time and use, the ignition key switch can jam or break. Take your car into a repair shop or dealership. They will diagnose and determine the problem, and help you decide the steps to take to fix your problem. I strongly recommend going to a dealership for most repairs and services, simply because they will fix your problem, take care of your car, and if they break something, they'll take full responsibility instead of pointing fingers until you say f#*& it!

Try lightly tapping the starter with a spanner and at the same time turning the key to start, if it starts you need the starter overhauled.
