Yes. Your advice would be appreciated
was the ignition lock with the key physically stuck where it would not turn at all either way ?
and the battery is fully charged ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes key would go on but would not turn either way 'I used the back up key and same result
ok the odds are the ignition lock went bad internally where the tumblers inside the lock have broken or froze up
being that even the back up key did the same thing its inside the ignition lock cylinder
the shop will more than likely have to replace the ignition lock and or ignition lock cylinder to correct this problem
