Key will not turn


If your key will not turn at all there is a good chance that your ignition tumbler has gone bad. The tumbler is the part that your key actually goes into. The tumbler is fairly easy to remove, and the new tumbler will actually come with step by step instructions. A new lock tumbler will normally cost no more then $30. If that does not work the only other option is the ignition switch itself and those are more expensive costing on average around $150 or more. I hope this helps you out, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Can a locked ignition on a 2004 Pontiac Aztex only be repaired by the dealership since the key has a chip? Cee


Nope it can be repaired at another facility.The ignition tumbler can be changed and as long as the the tumblers are still coded to the key the same key will still work, Now if the tumbler is installed with a new key then the relearn process may need be performed which takes about 30 minutes additional but not required that the dealership does the work.

Key stuck in ignition -- cannot turn on or off. Can an ignition switch cause the tumbler to lock up? Or does the ignition tumbler need to be replaced? If the ignition tumbler needs to be replaced, how...


lets start simple.get a can of silacone spray oil and spray into the switch and keep moving key and you will find this will reliese the key,if you need to remove the ign switch dont panic as its a simple enough job.Forget about steering wheel and whatever,simply remove the outer plastic cover then this exposes the switch at the back of switch is a plug with wires pull it away ,then below the key you should see a tiny screw undo, and make sure the steering lock is not under pressure,ie steering wheel free,when trying to remove switch move steering wheel back/forward and switch should pull out.good luck.adrian,,,,

2003 grandam key won't turn.


Either there is too much tension on the steering lock mechanism or the tumblers have dropped, assuming you have the correct key. If it is the tumblers a Locksmith might be able to repair the ignition switch but a cheaper solution would most likely be to replace the ignition. You should be able to get a new ignition key assembly from Auto Zone or your local Auto Parts store or the dealer. You might consider getting the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle when you do to assist you with step by step instructions and diagrams.

How do I remove the key tumbler 96 gmc pickup?


Most often the lack of spring back is not the key and tumbler set itself. There is no spring back in the tumbler but rather the internal area of the column- you can determine this by cylinder removal if you know how to remove. A 96 is most often what they consider a 10 cut side bar ignition. by diconnecting your battery and removing some shroud around the ignition. You will need to turn the key to crank postion and hold it their in order to depress the retainer that holds the cylinder in place, located top ignition.( Retainer small hole area)
While depressing retainer pull cylinder out -and you will have lock in hand for you to examine.

2005 honda civic ignition tumbler


Take it to a locksmith. You don't want to risk pulling it down yourself especially where the immobiliser harness is concerned, in addition Honda tumblers are really hard to source, the defectives ones will have to be removed. You need an experienced locksmith to do this.
