2007 Acura RDX key wont turn to LOCK (0) position

Asked by Dec 03, 2015 at 03:01 PM about the 2007 Acura RDX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2007 acura RDX (base) with 103k miles.. When I parked my car at
work today, I couldn't remove the key - the key would push in but I cannot
turn it to the LOCK (0) position. At lunch, I ran to lowes for lock lube and a
screwdriver, since I didn't have one in the car, and remove the plastic
surrounding the column. When I removed the bottom part, I don't recall
exactly what I did but the pressure I put on the key allowed the key to turn
to lock and I was able to pull it out real quick.. however, the key is now
stuck again.. I cleaned it but I had to get back to work. Here are some more
details:
- I can hear "clicks" when moving the shifter to different gears
- When in (P)ark, the doors unlock (as programmed) and the instrument
panel lights up (P)
- The battery in the key has been dead for sometime because the actuator
in the driver's side door broke a few years ago.. no big deal 2+ years
- The car starts without issue
- When I turn the car to "ON" the green "D" lights up as well as the red "P"
(or whatever gear I am in) I do not know if this is normal

Any help would be appreciated and if there is a way to override the lock so
my battery won't die just to get through the weekend that would be great to
know.

thanks,
brian
