I place my key into the ignition lock on my 2003 Range Rover Vogue

Customer Question

I place my key into the ignition lock on my 2003 Range Rover Vogue and it makes several `locking` sounds and will not allow me to turn the key. This goes on for a while and completely immobilisies the vehicle. I try again and still the same happens. Then suddenly it frees itself and I can turn the key and start the car.

i recommend having the vehicle scanned by a range rover specialist with a dedicated range rover laptop, should be a straightforward diagnosis

Auto Psychic :

theres not much diagnosis you can do on your own, i'm afraid.
