IGNITION KEY WON'T TURN

2003 Honda Element • 4 cylinder AWD Automatic • 87,000 miles

2003 Honda Element. Key will not turn in ignition, steering wheel is not locked, tried in neutral, no luck. Will the Recall fix for the ignition fix this problem?

Was there any kind of problem before this happened? Have you tried to lubricate key/lock with oil/wd40?

The key was kind of awkward going into the ignition once that day, but went in when I turned the key over. That and the key won't turn in the driver's side door for awhile now. Will try the wd40 and see how that goes. Thanks.

Almost sounds like the key is a bad key. Worn down and not working right.

Try another key if the key dosen't turn the ignition switch is bad.
