I have a 2005 Accord that is having some ignition problems. u have giggly to get it to start.

Asked by May 02, 2016 at 07:58 PM about the 2005 Honda Accord DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

You have to wiggle the key to get it to turn and start.  At times when you turn
it off the key won't turn all the way back...the key will come out and the car
will beep like it is still in there.
I have sprayed wd-40 and it seemed to help a little. I had new keys made
about 6 months ago so that shouldn't be the problem.  Any thoughts?  My
local mechanic who I trust, said that the switch would cost around 260 for
just the part.

Sounds like the ignition lock cylinder and or the ignition switch needs replacing.

That's what I am afraid of...does around $250 sound about right?
