My iginition key will not turn

Having problem with the key not wanting to turn in the ignition. I have a 2002 liberty, 3.7L 85,000 miles.

If i flip the key over, it may work. If I move the wheel around sometimes it will let the key turn.

Any Ideas?

It could be your ignition switch is worn out do you have alot of keys or key rings hanging from your ignition. I have changed many due to this the weight wears them out.

Iginition key won't turn off in my 2002 jaguar s type.

By turn off do you mean you can't remove the key from the Ignition? if so try this, while running with foot on the brake shift it from park to low a few times then back to park. sounds like the cable/linkage needs adjusting.

Good luck

Jeep liberty 2002.....ignition key lock

Most commonly it is the key is worn out. If you have a spare key or your current one is not too badly worn, have a copy of it made and try it in the switch. You will have to have the copy key "coded" so it will disable the anti-theft system in order for the engine to start. If the new key doesn't fix your problem, you will have to replace the tumbler assembly.

1990 automatic 85,000 miles- Shifter will not stay in park and will start jumping ahead if parked on an incline. Also, when starting the car, the key stays in start position- starting the engine and...

Check the shift cable for proper adjustment. Remove the console, put shift selector in N (make sure wheels are blocked), remove lock pin from cable adjuster, check that the hole in the adjuster is perfectly in line with the hole in the shift cable. (there are 2 holes in the end of the shift cable positioned 90degrees apart to allow for 1/4 turn adjustments) If not perfectly aligned, loosen the lock nut on the shift cable and adjust as necessary. Tighten the lock nut and install the lock pin in the adjuster. If the lock pin feels like it's binding when being installed, it's still out of adjustment and must be adjusted again.
The key staying in the start position: try spraying wd-40 or similar lubricant into key hole, if condition is the same, you will need to change the key ignition assembly, as it is worn out,

is it a chip key or old style? If it is a chip key try taking it off the key ring and try it or flip the key. Try the extra key that you should have. If that works then your problem is with the first key. Our Oddyssy does this intermittently and I think its my wifes keychain.
