Answer

dude i just went through the same thing last week

unless the ignition itesl has been replaced since it left the plant 10 yrs ago, the orignal key has probably worn too thin to contact the tumblers anymore. you could either replace the whole ignition column or better yet, hit a car dealer and get them to cut you a new set of keys from a copy they have on file. nothin to it.

  1. 2 is much much cheaper. trust me.

cheers.

Answer

Had the same thing happen to me...keys down to the lights. What happened was someone tried to steal the vehicle and by forcing god knows what into the ignition, it made everything lose. Look closer at your ignition area you will be able to tell if someone pryed the area with something

= you ignition switch is worn out. replace it they cost about 4 bucks at any auto store

The cause could be a combination of worn key and ignition cylinder. First have a new key made, if that doesn't resolve the problem, then concider replacing the cylinder itself. Contrary to the above answer, it costs a bit more than "4 bucks" however the expertise comes when you begin to disassemble the steering column. The steering wheel must first be removed, then the turn signal cancelling cam along with moving the wiring harness. A special tool is required to compress the retaining spring clip assembly, then the key cylinder may be removed, using caution to note the position of the rack and gear train. It can be performed at home, but only if you're mechanically inclined.

Particles move freely?

Well, that depends on what state of matter they are in. a solid can move, but cannot move freely as it is bound to one spot by the gravitational forces. water would be able to move freely in a confined space. and gas can move freely as long as there is nothing blocking its path.


The control on this cable does not move so freely that you would likely move it by bumping it - you definitely have to intentionally move the wheel for it to turn?
