Try it manually, tru key... if stock up or jam, check the key hole if something foriegn object was inserted or blocking the key passage... if non, spray it with wd-40 or any lubricating oil...

Just purchased a after market key housing, replaced key as well as chip. Car will unlock & lock but will no longer start with new housing, old spare key will still start car. ESP is also appearing on...

If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all.
Plus i know a website that sells very cheap but very very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.

I have a 2003 Hyundai sante fe that will not start and I believe it may be related to the security system. This has happened twice, but the first time I got the car to start after clicking lock/unlock

Hi try operating with the spare remote to lock & unlock the doors & try the spare key to start may be the immobilizer playing up if it starts with the spare key it could be the transponder in the key itself wanting re programing
hope this helps

How can I get the key out of the ignition when I try to turn the car off?

hi do you mean when you turn off the ignition the key won't come out of the lock? .. is it the same if you gently rock the steering wheel right and left whilst trying to remove the key? .. does the steering turn into the security lock position? .. have you always had this problem since you bought the car? .. try gently pushing the key into the lock and then holding the key ring / key fob try to withdraw the key whilst taking the pressure off it by gently rocking the steering. hope you also have a spare key to to use instead of putting the same key back once you have taken it out .. if it does come out try lubricating the lock with a little 3 in 1 oil before using the spare key.

How to replace 2008 HHR lock switch

If it uses FOB that uses 1 switch for lock/unlock, check if the switch is not stuck at 'ON'. If you have a spare key, try using that one with the first key kept away from the car. Or you can remove the battery from the first FOB.

Front passenger door will not open 1998 Tercel

If the passenger door has not been opened for some weeks or months, or in icy weather, it is possible that the rubber seals around the door frame will cause the door to appear 'stuck' fast - in this case, a bit of extra force from inside the car whilst pulling on the interior door handle should cause the door to open. Failing that, if the car has electrically operated central locking, when the key fob is pressed to deactivate the central locking does the door lock on the passenger side work as expected? Try unlocking the passenger door with a key, and or pull the door lock button upwards to ensure that the lock has been deactivated. Check for blown fuses.

Keys locked in running car.

Use your spare key to open the trunk, pull the positive battery cable to kill the car, wait 5 minutes, re connect cable, try to open door again.

Key ignition

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.
