Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when I get out of my car and take my key out, car wont lock, I used to just stick the key
back in and restart it and turn it off and it would be back to normal, Now lights just don"t
turn off when I turn the key. So I can not lock it.

Squirt some WD-40 onto your key and work it back and forth in your ignition switch. You may have a couple of stuck tumblers in the switch. Did you happen to notice if your headlights are on also?
