  1. Ok guys did the repair and work those 20 $ ignition switches are beautiful The initial problem was the cylinder (in le lock assembly, (white 45 degree angle)) at the top will not go down Change the switch and solve the problem The problem was in the switch where the screwdriver point their is a mechanism that push and was not working, resulting in not pushing the cylinder down in the lock assembly. Wow 20 $ Audi part at just any parts stores Original part with the Audi logo we really have volks parts....
  2. Thanks, guys I will try to change the switch hope it work 20 $ repair versus 500 $. And for the record I’ am the Flying Frenchman, cool name but I don't fly I DRIVE, I’ am currently doing a lot of moods on my 986 S, I will post picture when everything is set and done. Headers, custom metal high flow cats good for the planet and good for performance so very very good, short shifter, lightweight flywheels... I will really be flying.... Étienne

  6. I will make a long story short 1- My english is not perfect I'am french Canadian 2- My car is a 2000 986 S 3-I have a problem with the ignition but the ignition is not the real problem in the key hole in the top on the key hole 45 degree angle their is a tiny cylinder that goes up (force by the key when you put it in) and down when you remove the key. My problem is that cylinder will not go down by itself leaving all the accessories at on ( same as if the key was in ) to put it down I have to give a good wack on the ignition, not the way to go with a Porsche. I try many lubricant but n
