Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Looking outside at the vehicle, What direction are your front wheels pointing? Are they turned which way, right or left?
Well the 1st thing to try is a good 2nd key, hopefully a spare that has got little use.
If thats not avail, Get a new key cut at the dealer from your key code. DO NOT duplicate your current key as the wear will duplicate right to the new key. Keys are designed soft, as they are much , much cheaper to replace then ign locks. If the key is not your issue then ignition lock will be your repair needed. Continued use of a worn key will eventually destroy the lock as well, It can only absorb so much as in metal fragments.
And I'm assuming you can pull the key out right?
ok, a new dealer key. Don't let them duplicate it, make them cut from your code (VIN#), otherwise it wont help at all.
We had this problem all the time, BUT the dealer would much rather sell you a $400 ign lock then a $15 key so it happened A LOT.............
