Question about 1999 Nissan Sentra
My sister's 97 nissan sentra's ignition is locked. i've tried the whole jiggling the key and yanking the steering wheel side to side while trying to turn the key deal but it doesn't seem to work. the steering wheel itself isn't locked because it is moving pretty freely in each direction but the ignition won't budge. any ideas?
Replace the ignition switch assembly-u should be able to use the same tumbler as long as thats not the problem

With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.
