Key wont turn in ignition


Often this is caused by steering wheel interlock. Try turning wheel a little back and forth while trying to turn key to see if key now turns. Some cars require stepping ******* brake pedal and if the switch at the pedal has failed or become dislodged this can happen.

Car is parked and off but unable to turn key in ignition and steering wheel is locked.


Try moving the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering lock will stick if there is pressure from the wheel. If this doesn't do it, try spraying or pouring some dry graphite into the lock cylinder ( the hole for the key) slide the key in and out of the lock quickly a few times to spread the graphite, then move the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key.
Hope this does it for you!

It sounds like sticking lock tumblers since beating on it seems to make it work once in awhile. No other items in the column will die out and work again upon pounding on it

I have a 98 chevy malibu and the theft system was preventing me from starting my car but now when the light cuts off and i tried to start it it still wont turn over. It starts for like two seconds but cuts...


It should take about 8minutes to reset the ignition system but if it is doing it all the time ,the pass lock in the ignition switch is toast! You have no choice but to replace the ignitin switch!

1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem


Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again
