I can't figure it out

If you have a spare key, try it. There may be an issue with the key or the anti-theft system.


When I hear about Witches I walk the other way- as fast as I can! Happy Halloween!


Does your vehicle have a key fob to unlock the door? If so, get in the vehicle via the key, leave the door unlocked. Now try to cycle the key from lock to unlock and back to lock.

Ignitions witches are scary.
