3.2TL: The 2000 Acura 3.2TL key I always use suddenly wouldnt

This answer was rated:

The 2000 Acura 3.2TL key I always use suddenly wouldn't turn in the ignition slot. Tried turning front wheels but it didn't solve problem. The spare key works fine. What happened to my usual key? Just 125K on car. Larry

Hello I'm Neal and I am here to help resolve your issue. If I cannot help I will opt out and refer your question to another expert.


If your spare is working normally, then it is just going to be the way your key is wearing most likely. A locksmith can usually "tune it up" and make it work again or make another based on your spare.


It is also possible your key was damaged or bent, so check it closely.
