Key will not go into ignition

We successfully put scooter into operation. After taking key out, it wil not go bACK IN. Wehave tried many times. There seems to be a spring loaded, brass colored piece down in the ignition that blocks the key entry.

    WD40application & exercizing spring loaded[obstructing]object did not help.Actually the spring loaded member is below 2 stationary pins which correspond to grooves on the key.. It moves freely out of the way of the key when pushed but returns to an extended [obstructing]position when pressure on it is ended.

    Thank you for supplying the name of the spring. In view of the fact that this does not help solve the problem,however, I would appreciate a refund of the $10.00 fee.

If you don't feel you NEED the key, you could remove the damaged cylinder and install a switch that will do the same as the key.
But if you're going through the trouble of taking out the lock cylinder, you might just as easily replace it.
They may - or may not - sell parts to the public.
Some manufacturers only sell to authorized service centers.

That spring you are referring to is the ignition cylinder spring. You will need to have a tech look at it in order to get it working again. If it is still under warranty I would suggest calling Pride Mobility.

Can't put key in the ignition


try moving your steering wheel back and forth while trying key. I don't see how you could move the steering column, its usually bolted in very tight. If you can move your steering column, it needs tightened up immediatly!

Ignition is loose


sounds like a loose or damage ignition, if you are happy to get your hands dirty, it should be easy to fix / replace as needed, first thing you need to try is poping a small amount of WD40 in to the ignition key socket, this some times loosens the internal components with luck that will sort it. if not then look to see if you can find the screws / bolts that hold the cover in place, if you can then just open up, there will be a nut on the underside of the ignition that is probably loose, tighten that first, then check all leads are secure if not tighten / re solder or crimp on new connection. test to see if problem resolved, if so fine put back together and off you go, if not then you will need to take out the ignition and order a replacement, there should be product info sticker on it, i would check eBay for a generic ignition (much cheaper) once you have replacement install and of you go.

My 323i was stored for 2 years. I am now getting it road ready and the passenger front, and both back doors wil not unlock. can you help?


Hi, try this as it may or may not apply to your model.Get in, open and close the drivers door, put key in ignition turn 2 clicks and take back out again, within 5 seconds, hold the 'lock' button in the middle of the key and press the 'unlock' button 3 times, then let go. Quickly repeat the lock and unlock button sequence on the spare key. All doors should lock and then unlock when it has worked.

They didnt think they could remake the key but the guy i worked with was awesome. he cut the new key and it started my scooter. worked perfectly and it only cost $2.50 !!!

Key Does Not Work


It could be that chip inside key just went bad. Do u have a 3rd key? That works? If so take the 2 good keys and turn the igntion to run postion for 3 secs each then do the same for the 3rd key and this will reprogram it if the chip is ok. If you do not have 2 good keys then u will have to have a scan tool that will link up with PATS system and perform security access to reprogram it.

Central locking


To re programme your key if your fob has three buttons is as follows. Turn the ignition key in quick succession from off to ignition on 4 times. You should hear a chime to indicate programme mode. Quickly remove the key and press the lock button followed by the unlock button. Wait until you hear the chime again and see if the fob works. If it does not operate the central locking, see if you can open the tailgate with the fob, I guess you have a three button remote? If it doesn't, repeat the above but quicker!! it should programme quite easily. When you checked the fuse, did you take it out? I suggest you remove the fuse and wait 30 seconds and put back in, get someone in the car to see if any doors respond to you replaceing the fuse. recheck the fob operation and the key, this maybe the answer.
