SX4: I got my spare key that I have never used before, and it went

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have an SX4 2009, which I brought in Nov 2009. Yesterday morning I couldn't get the key into the ignition, it just wouldn't fit, this is the same key I've been using since I brought the car. So I got my spare key that I have never used before, and it went straight into the ignition with no problems.

Why won't the first key now fit into the ignition? It wouldn't have something to do with the battery going flat would it????

Welcome to
The problem you have sound like you old key as worn out, when you insert the key into the barrel it moves tumbles that line up and let you turn the ignition.
Having a flat battery would not effect the key operation

Can I just clarify - you are saying that after 17 months a brand new car key gets worn out?

Thanks for the reply.
Your key must be worn or bent this is the only logical explanation that would cause you a problem with the steering lock.
In the UK this would be covered under the manufactures warranty.
Phone you local dealer and check if it is covered
