If you get new ignition switch then you get new key with it.But if you want to use your old key then you will have to get your old key reprogrammed by dealer or from local lock smith who deals with car key programming. ----------- To replace ignition switch:--- Disconnect the negative terminal of your car battery.Then remove the steering shroud.the switch is located inside the steering shroud assembly.the shroud and steering are fitted by few screws.Remove those screws.This will separate the steering and shroud.The shroud will come out.First remove upper half and then remove lower half of the shroud from steering assembly. Once this is done.The ignition switch will be easily seen,just remove the screws holding ignition switch and disconnect the wiring harness from ignition switch.There you will see few clips holding the harness. Carefully UN-lock the clips to loosen the wiring harness. the switch is out.Now in the same way reinstall the new ignition switch in reverse position as you removed the old one. ------------------------------- this will help.thanks.Helpmech.

Hi my names Trevor. I need to get the lock code from my truck so i can get a new key since i lost mine. I was hoping you could tell me exactly where this lock code is at... Thanks

Hello trevor
The best way to get the correct key made is to remove another lock that the lost key operated and
take it to a locksmith, they will make you a key for about $10.00. Either of the door locks will have
the code stamped on them, or if you have a locking glove box or console that locked with the ign.
key these may have the code stomped on them. Hope this is helpful.

If its the ignition switch that you changed you need to leave the key in the ignition switch in the on position for about fifteen minutes, it should start after that if not keep repeating until it does.

What to know how to tell if ignition key is going bad

Check for voltage to the "start" side of the soliniod. It'll be the little wire. Check voltage from that wire to ground while an assistant turns the key to the start possision. If you don't have 12v, then start working your way back.....asssuming you have a good hot battery w/ good connections and your neutral saftey switch (auto) or clutch switch (standard) are opperational. Jump the switches and see if you have anything then. If not, the it might be the ign switch.

Igition is locked

try getting some lock lube from the hardware store, spray it into the lock, (never use any kind of oil just the graphite powder lock lube) spray the lock lube into the key cylinder and then work the key in and out a few times, if this doesn't fix it u will need a new lock cylinder.

Time for a new ignition switch. This just the switch portion and not the tumbler. You should be able to still use your old tumbler and key. Good luck to you. Thanks for using Fixya!

more than likely it is the ignition switch audi actually has an open recall campaign for the faulty ignition switch due to a spring inside the switch stretching causing the key to fail to return to the proper run position. i just did mine yesterday.
