Hello,

In the diagrams down below I have included the instructions for the removal and installation of your vehicle's ignition lock cylinder. Please go through this guide and get back to us with what you are able to find out.

I had the key lock cylinder removed already and tried starting it with a screwdriver, it still wouldn t turn past run. I found a plastic clip attached to a cable that ran to my shifter, when I removed it I was able to get it to crank again. I suspect the plastic piece is worn and won t allow the key to spin all the way.

Hello again,

It's probably a little plastic arm that goes to the ignition switch and pushes an arm in the switch as the key is turned in the lock cylinder. A lot of times these will break and then the key and the lock cylinder itself will be to spin around in a complete circle and do nothing at all.

Thanks,
Alex
