Default Question ignition KEY in 1990 Integra LS

This afternoon, I found out I could remove my key while my teg was
still running. This was not happening yesterday and the key is not
broken. If I put the key in about 1/16 inch and turn the ignition
switch to the normal OFF position, the engine stops. Ideas? Thanx

The lock cylinder may be worn out.
If you replace it,you will get different keys,and a mis-match between doors
and ignition.

Keys wear before the cylinder. Best to try a new key first (but NOT a new
one made from the old blank!!).

Howdy. I don't have a NEW key. If I try to put my key all the way in
the ignition it does not go in smoothly and difficult to remove. I can
now start my car with a flat headed screwdriver. Can a ACURA dealer
cut me a new key? Thanks. d2c

Probably. If you still have the original key, is there a 4-digit number
visible on the shaft? Give that to the dealer and they ought to be able to
get a new one.

You'll very likely need to show up in person, with your ownership for the
vehicle.

A note to everyone else: NEVER use your original keys unless you have no
choice. Get a copy made of that, and use the copy as your daily key. This
way when it wears out, getting a new one made is easy.

Yes, there is. So its off to the dealer to see what he can do. If I
attempt to put in my current Keys in, they go in very hard and they
are nearly IMPOSSIBLE to pull out.

Thanks for the heads up viz KEY original. I will keep one in a safe
place once I am got this fixed.

If he can start his car *without the key in the ignition*,it's not a "worn
key",it's a worn lock cylinder.

You might want to dribble a few drops of 3-in-1 oil on your new key and
work it in and out a few times in an attempt to lubricate the plungers.

Actually, I see you're in Canada. Even better. Go to Canadian Tire, and get
a spray can of Rust Check ($7). Shoot some of that directly into the lock,
then work your new key in and out a few times. Rust Check is wonderful
stuff for lock lubrication. It does get a bit stiff at 40-below, though.

A locksmith can fix it for you IF you have a NEW key.
