Over the last couple of weeks I have received calls from customers stating the keys wont turn in the ignition.
I went to a Ford transit where the key had snapped off in the ignition, which we couldn't get out so I had to replace that one.
A Vauxhall Zafira yesterday in Clacton where the key wouldn't turn in the ignition. The first thing to try if your key wont turn is to spray a bit of wd40 in the key hole and then slide the key in and out for a couple of minutes. This will normally loosen any dirt or metal filings that may be in of got lodged in the ignition which is stopping the key from turning.
This is exactly what I did yesterday and it worked, got the key turning as good as new again. Also cut the customer a spare key just incase.
But in these two weeks I have had two Honda Civic ignitions which I have had to replace. One was a 2003 plate and the other 2006, but both with exactly the same problem where just one day the had would not turn in the ignition.
After looking into it and talking to a couple of other people this seems to be a problem with the Honda Civics and Jazz where the key gets to a certain point where its worn and it just will not turn.
The two jobs I've had as well, the keys don't even look that bad, a poor design fault from Honda which is surprising.
Most ignitions are fairly straight forward to replace and not too expensive so its the end of the world, might keep you off the road for a couple of days but easily fixable.
