Ignition weirdness ...

Postby metrognome » Fri Jun 05, 2009 10:16 pm

For the last week, I have been having intermitant trouble starting my car because the key simply won't turn all the way to the "ST" or START position. It get's close, but it just won't go all the way. Dash lights come on, no unusual SID messages, but the car can't be started unless I turn all the way back in the other direction and then try again. After that it's fine.

Has anybody had this problem before? If so, what could be the problem? I'm not sure if it's a matter of lubrication, key recognition, key wear or something more obscure.

Any constructive thoughts welcome.
