the key is worn on the tumblers or the tumblers are worn out. you can buy a new key and tumbler set or key and ignition set for the car this will take care of the problem. there is one other way go to a place that makes keys and ask if they can make the key ridges alittle bit taller on another key.


Try spraying a little WD40 on key and in ignition.
