HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

The 2 main causes are either worn key or worn tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder. If this happens with both keys, then it is the tumblers, if only the main key, then replace the key.

If the tumblers, you can try spraying some graphite into the ignition cylinder and working key back and forth. This will usually resolve the issue.

If not, then replace the ignition lock cylinder.
