The vehicle thinks the keys are in the ignition all the time. Door chime won't go off and driver side door will not lock. How do I fix this issue?


If the problem is the sensor in the lock cylinder, you may have to replace the lock. The new lock would need to be re-keyed to fit your key.

1998 Plymouth grand voyager ignition won't turn


I have had this happen on my 98 Voyager. Just have a new key cut. This new key will sometimes cure the problem. The older keys get worn out and won't unlock the ignition. Try this before a much more expensive and time consuming change of the ignition.

1997 chevy malibu anti theft system how do I fix this problem The car won't start I believe the car is in the anti theft mode


The late-90's GM Passlock system (e.g. 1997 Malibu, Regal, Impala, etc.) has a part around the ignition tumbler that goes bad and no longer reliably detects the valid key. In that situation, the "Theft System" light will slowly flash and the carburetor is cut off so the engine won't start. The time-out on the system is 10 minutes - you don't have to do anything, you don't have to disconnect the battery, the key can be out of the ignition -- it's just a time delay. After 10 minutes, the light goes out and you can try again (but if the key is again not detected, the light will start flashing again and you have to wait another 10 minutes)
Someone else, who had this problem, told me to remove all other keys from my keyring. The weight of the other keys pulls on the ignition key causing the key to be unreadable. It has been 7 weeks since I have been doing this and have not had a problem

I have a 2000 Ford Focus. I put the key in the ignition, but it won't unlock. What can I do to unlock the ignition? Thanks!


Are you using a key with a "Chip"? or a copied one?
You can get the engine to "ON" position with a crafted key that'll open the doors, but without the proper coded key the Ignition won't go off.

Key won't turn to start the car


Hi, Just a guess. Is the steering wheel turned so that it is under pressure? If it is, use one hand to relieve the presure while at the same time turing the key in the ignition. This simple solution may be the cause. Good Luck!
