Will replacing key using VIN help with ignition sticking?
My 2005 Saturn Vue has a "sticky" ignition problem. Key often just won't turn (like it
catches) or else it won't release. While nit covered by ignition recall, the mechanic at
certified Saturn service said the key might be worn down. He advises getting a new key
made using the VIN ($45 + 12). Has anyone else done this and did it work?
Check for recall. GM had a major recall on ignition switches. I had the same issue with a Pontiac Sunfire and it was covered under a recall.
Why not just change this ignition switch out . Considering the year of the vehicle you switch is probably worn out. It was not made to last for ever you know. Things were not made or designed simple at that time. I like the new cars that use a push button. My mom use to have a golf cart that when she pushed on the gas pedal it would start up.
No, a new key won't help.Had the same issue with my 2007 Vue. This sticky ignitions are a known Saturn problem but it has yet to be recalled. Cost me $600 to put in a new one as eventually the key just wouldn't turn and it had to be towed to a GM place
Have a saturn vue hybrid-2007. Same issue with keys. GMC dealer just said my vin number named for free replacement of ignition cylinder and keys. They do not alert you because not technically a safety recall. check with your GMC dealer on this.
