Ever have problems inserting the key into the ignition?

I've noticed in the past few months sometimes my key doesn't want to go into the ignition. I've had it everywhere from just being a bit resistant to completely blocked. If I pull it back out and mess with it a bit it usually goes in.

Anyone else ever have this problem?

Havent had any issues with inserting the key, but I have had problems with the steering lock. Sometimes its a real pain in the @zz to turn the key even when pulling on the wheel to free the lock.

Which bars does this happen at? The whiskey or the beer?

When that happens to mine I just turn the wheel slightly to the right and it slides in perfectly. Just a steering lock thing, one of the many special "characteristics" this truck has all its own.

No, this isn't the steering lock. The steering lock can keep you from turning the key, but it shouldn't affect insertion of the key.

Actually I don't have one to try right now. I'm away from home at school, and I forgot to bring any spares with me.

It doesn't happen 100% of the time though, so I'm not sure if that would tell me anything. I feel pretty sure though that the problem is in the ignition switch.

I have same problem, at first I thought I wasn't holding it straight enough but that wasn't the problem. Sometime it's just hard to get it to go and there doesn't seem to be any reason.

Take Viagra and you will have no more problems.


Wait, were you speaking metaphorically?
