Honda Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
do your brake lights work
if not it is problem with the brake light swich
you will probobly have to replace the switch
does your origional key work
in door lock and ignition
your steering wheel might have to be more pulled from one side or the othher if key doesn't turn
steering lock might have pressure against it
it is mechanical
sometimes the wheel is turned so it has a lot of pressure on the plunger that locks it in place so that it won't drop out of its slot and allow you to turn the key
before when i asked about the brake light switch i was thinking about not comming out of park not steering locked
all you can do is try to pul on the steering wheel while trying to turn the key if it wont turn try pulling the other way
if it still won't turn you might have problems with the tumblers in your ignition switch
Can't Turn Ignition Switch?
Check for Locked Steering
Got a service customer complaining he or she
can't turn the ignition switch to start the engine?
The reason could just be the steering column lock
pin is engaged with the front wheels turned.
Here's what typically happens:
Some folks use the steering wheel to help support
themselves while climbing in or out of the vehicle.
This is very common among elderly or disabled
drivers. Doing this turns the front wheels, which
twists the tires against the ground. The twisted
tires apply torque to the steering column. With the
ignition switch in LOCK (0), the steering column
lock pin is engaged. But the applied torque on the
steering column binds the lock pin, making it
tough to turn the ignition switch. The ignition
switch won't turn to ON (II) if the lock pin isn't
disengaged from the steering column.
Tell your customer there's nothing wrong with the
ignition switch itself. All he or she needs to do is
turn the steering wheel from side to side while
turning the switch. This usually releases the lock
pin so the engine can be started. In some cases,
though, your customer may need to give a good
tug on the wheel. This could easily happen when
parking on a hill and the wheels are turned
sharply before the engine is shut off.
if this doesn't help then i recomend dealership because best to replace lock and new lock would have to be reprogramed to car and honda doesn't recomend rekeyng their ignition switches
yes more than enough but you will have to accept in for me to get paid
and thank you
