Jim Katen Posted December 24, 2008 Report Share Posted December 24, 2008 My 2002 Honda CR-V started acting up a few weeks ago. I started having to insert the key several times before it would turn in the ignition lock. This is one of those fancy-dandy ignitions that requires an electronic chip in the key. The Honda service center told me that the ignition lock was failing and that it would cost $750 to get it fixed. I told them to pound sand. My favorite locksmith looked at it on Friday and told me he could fix it for $125. I couldn't leave it with him that day. He said, "OK, but don't wait too long, the lock cylinder isn't going to get better, only worse." Yesterday it got worse. Right after putting chains on the tires, (We've been having weather out here.) I got in to start it up and the key wouldn't turn. I've tried every trick I know -- wiggling, jiggling, tried all three keys that I've got, tried turning the wheel, wiggling the shifter, whispering sweet nothings into the steering column, etc. So my question is: how can I get the damn key to turn? - Jim Katen, Oregon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
