Went to start my '08 passion and the key will not turn in the ignition. I have replaced the battery, and it will still not turn. The car locks/unlocks and radio work. Any suggestions?
I've only had a smart for over 5 years. I've never had a time where it's stranded me. I had a Saturn for 14 years before that, and it stranded me at least 3 times. I've never heard of this issue on any other smart. It could have been just about anything... I'd still say take it in and have it looked at, since you're still not sure what went wrong with it.What do people do if this is the only car they drive?
Sometimes it just takes time for penetrating lubricant to find the right spot!So I had flipped the yellow switch on Monday morning, still the key did not turn. I had sprayed lubricant and checked for pebbles/stuff in tumbler. Nothing, tried again on this morning....Nothing. Came back from lunch sat down in the seat and it turned right over???
What do people do if this is the only car they drive? I have a big F250 as my spare vehicle. I really would not be happy if it left me stranded somewhere....
