and or turn the key upside down it eventually works
. It seems to be getting worse and recently i see
the other key starting to do the same what can i do

1 Answer


have keys made at a pro lock smith not a hardware store , use the good one till you get a new ignition set installed before it's ruined , a lock smith can also get the set cheaper than a dealer
