My key won't fully turn to "off".
There are times when after I park my car and I turn the key to off, it won't fully turn to "off". My key gets stuck between "off" and "acc". My engine turns off but the battery is still on! I don't know what's wrong. I've tried turning the wheel, it worked once but never again. I put the car in neutral, didn't work. I bought a new key, thinking that maybe my old key was too old and jagged on the edges but that didn't help either. It's gotten to the point where I have to disconnect my battery. My ignition is on the dashboard (if that helps).
Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong???
put some lockeze in the spot where the key gos in, spray it good and keep a rag under the steering colum. If that dos'nt work you will have to replace the lock cylinder
I had a similar problem with my old '96 Grand Am (may it be crushed into bits). Took it to the dealer and they said it was a solenoid (spelling? I'm a mechanical moron, but I remember what they said it was ant that it was not a cheap fix) causing the problem.
Did you ever find out what was wrong with your car? I'm having the same issues.
OMG, ME 2!!! EXACTLTY THE SAME, RUNNIN BATTERY DOWN & all!!! please help
Yes, this is a very common problem. The lock cylinder wears out, and needs to be replaced. Very annoying, I have had 3 of my own with this issue, as well as close to 50 customers in the last couple years
