993 ignition switch

cayenne 1200

Recommended Posts

Hi folks

The ignition switch on my '98 993 turbo is starting to play up. When i put the key in to start it wont turn without me having to wiggle it about. It doesnt make any difference if the steering lock is on or not, it will go after a while but i dont want to get caught out with it.

Any ideas?

I'm guessing that the key got distorted and one or more of the tumblers is not lining up inside the rotating part of the lock. You might consider getting the key code and order a new key, cut by code, rather than from your original key. Many locksmiths can do this. Else look to replace the switch and key (as i'm about to do on my '96 - bad elec contacts for mine).

I had that on the TT I bought 5 weeks ago. The former owner admitted having had the same problem and claimed to have solved it with a tad of grease. My mechanic said that was totally wrong after i had added some new grease and got rid of the problem. I believe what my mechanic said when I admitted my faux-pas, that maybe try some brake liquid injected with a syringe...... As opposed to the grease that won't get stiff when aging... Just my thoughts....
