Q: Q: Ignition lock cylinder

asked by on

My ignition lock needs to ne replaced, but the switch will not turn to the on position so that i can remove the cylinder. Is there another way?

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The only other way to get the ignition lock cylinder out you would have to drill it out. Then the lock insides can be removed so you can replace the lock cylinder. Make sure to not use over a 1/2 inch drill bit to drill it out.
