Q: Q: Ignition stuck.

asked by on

The ignition will not turn. It feels like it is stuck.

I would try the spare key a few times to see if its a problem with the individual key or the tumblers in the lock cylinder itself, if it works with the spare have a few copies but if you have the same problem expect that the cylinder has failed. If you’re still having problems, have a mechanic come inspect and repair your ignition assembly.
