Question about Chevrolet Cavalier

Open Question

I lost my keys to my (1994) Chevrolet Cavalier and some hack locksmith jimmied the ignition key because he could not replace it without replacing the ignition so he made it so i can start it with a screw driver. (gasp!) Now the battery is always going dead. What will be the cost of replacing the entire ignition be? Do they sell old used ones from old cars? HELP! Sam

SOURCE: how to get key out that is stuck in ignition

Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

ok well here's the thing. This key has not been used before. The keys are cut to the specs of the ignition so they may be undercut so to speak. I know on my car i can turn it upside down it will work. But on the other hand it could just possibly be a back up for when you lock your keys in your car (not likely but it's still possible). You can keep putting your key in and out a bunch of times and **** the steering wheel back and forth as you turn the key to get it used to the ignition switch. See if that works and if not i will see what i can come up with in the meantime for this exact car.

Only way it would work is to do the 01 conversion by switching the whole doghouse (fenders, hood, bumper, lights, etc.) It can be done though.

2001 chevy cavalier lost key can I replace the ignition switch without a key?


the original key is coded to your car.
So changing the barrel to have a new key wont help and ill tell you why.
Inside the original key is a transponder chip that is programmed to the cars immobiliser unit.
Attached to the ignition barrel is whats called a reader coil and its job is to read the keys chip when inserted in the barrel to deactivate the immobiliser so that the car will start.
What you need to do is contact a good knowlegable locksmith to provide a new key and code it to your car

Ignition lock damaged. Does the replacement need reprogramming as I understand that the key resistance sends a specific voltage to instrument panel cluster to allow engine power control module to sustain...


Tumbler is mechanical only and rotates electrical portion of ignition. Basically, a lock on an electrical switch. Key sends signal through an implanted chip to allow start circuit to work.I'm thinking replacing the cylinder lock and having rekeyed to original key should fix the problem. Most locksmiths can do this and can run $140 or so with even a new programmed key.

Ignition switch 1994 ranger


If it were me, I'd take the Vin # down to the Dealer and get a key made(and take back the ignition you bought). As far as I know without the original key to allow the release pin to depress, the only possible chance might be to try another Ford key and it may release the ignition basket. Or call a locksmith and he can make a key for probably $50. **Or (ha ha) I could make a copy of my '94 Ranger key and send you a copy ! :>)
