95 Honda Accord Key Will Not Turn

Greetings,

My 95 4 Door Accord key will not turn when it is in the ignition. Key will not turn to the I position. Other keys have the same problem. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

First make sure your car is in park. Sounds crazy, but I've seen it happen to people before.

Next, try turning the key and the wheel at the same time. If that doesn't work then I'm not sure. GL

This happened to me last month. Turns out after I dropped the igition switch on my wife' s car took it to a locksmith and it turn out the keys were worn. You probably need a new set of keys done.

Or it could be the ignition key column got worn out after many years of use that needs to be replaced.

From my experience at the dealership, the most common reasons were the Interlock mechanism failed (you have ruled this out already), The keys are worn, or the key tumblers inside have worn. Get a new key as suggested already, and if that doesn't work, you may need to have the tumbler assembly either rebuilt or replaced.

IF your keys are worn you can get new ones by VIN at your local Honda dealership, I ran into this issue with my 92 accord its only 10 bucks!!!
