Q: how to fix my ignition?

asked by on August 26, 2016

My ignition came out with my keys when I took my keys out. I put the ignition back in but my keys won't go in and my ignition is stuck. I think I put it in wrong. I'm not sure. What do I do?

Hey there. You’ll most likely need to have a locksmith or a mobile mechanic to come out to your location to see if the vehicle needs a new ignition switch and lock cylinder, or if the original one can be repaired. Have the expert check out the car in person to have this repaired and get you back on the road.
