My best guess would be that your belt either broke or at least jumped off. If it is just off it may be a bad tensioner pulley. If the you can hear the motor run and it is not turning then something has to be wrong with the belt not driving the tumbler.

Key wont turn pass acc it locks how can i fix


Ignition key cylinder tumblers are worn out!
Time to replace the cylinder.
Help prevent this from happening again by lightening your key ring load. A heavy key ring puts constant pressure on the lock tumblers and wears them down to eventually deform and prevent the tumbler cylinder from turning.
Most people employ the philosophy, "if it jams, just force it", which bends the weakened lock tumblers and hastens destructive wear.

How replace a lock tumbler on a 1995 Mercedes benz c220


If the key does not turn at all in the ignition tumbler then your going to need to drill a hole in the side of the steering lock in order to manually release the steering lock and remove it complete with the ignition tumbler attached. If you get a new steering lock you can examine it to see exactly where to drill the hole and how to manually release it. If the key does turn at least to position 1 then all you need is the removal pins that slide into the small holes around the face of the tumbler. If there are no holes then once the key is in position 1 all you have to do is turn the tumbler housing to the left until is unscrews. Let me know if you need any further assistance on the removal if the key is stuck.

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.

Is there an easy online guide to changing out the ignition tumbler in a 1992 dodge caravan?


Hi,
First remove the plastic 2 piece shroud around steering column so as to gain access to the housing the tumbler sits in. Find three Phillips screws to remove in holes in the lower piece.
Turn the ignition key to the Run position. Insert a small tip screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the housing to push the spring-loaded tab which will free the tumbler so you can simply pull the tumbler out with the key.
Installation is the reverse. Be sure tumbler with key inserted is set to the Run position.
Depress spring-loaded tab, insert tumbler into housing hole with tab down. All the way in,
Turn key to the Lock or turn it off.


Let us know if you want something more else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Oldsmobile 2001 intrigue Ignition main the key will not turn


Possible fix for the year of car is a worn key or tumbler or both. Check with Olds with your car vin number to cut a new key. If it's the tumbler, it will have to be re-pinned with new pins by locksmith or replaced with new tumbler. Rare occasions the turning of steering wheel frees the steering locks pressure hold on ignition tumbler. New tumbler can be reset to match door so as not to have two different keys.
