Common Reasons Why Your Key Won’t Turn

Just like all the other parts of your car, over time the small parts inside the ignition cylinder can wear out, leaving you unable to start your vehicle. The ignition lock assembly itself is a relatively simple tumbler and key mechanism which is built to last the expected lifetime of the vehicle. With constant use, debris can build up inside the tumblers, causing the mechanism to jam.

Worn-down or bent keys can also damage the pins inside the lock cylinder, while the tumblers can become rounded over, break, or get stuck, making it tough to turn the key. If this is the cause of the problem, our technical at Charleston Locksmith can create a brand-new master key rather than simply making a duplicate using a key that’s already starting to wear out.
