Ignition Lock


Recommended Posts

It seems I need to change the ignition lock as the dealer cant seem to get a new key programmed into the car. He claims it could be the ignition lock (which has a sensor), or the anti-theft module. Oddly enough, after the key program issue my ignition lock is acting up and getting stuck.

Heres the question, if I replace the whole lock myself ($150 part), will I be able to start the car, or does this part need to be programmed to accept the key. The dealer tells me it does, and I cant do it myself. Is that true?

I had the ignition lock replaced two weeks ago. I used a local shop who works on Porsches.

I did not need to buy a new key, but the lock cost $400, parts and labor.

Several people said that the lock can go suddenly and the key will not work anymore, turns in the lock, etc., so I did it before my key did the same.

The shop said it is not so easy to do yourself, getting the dash off and reassembling the key tumblers.

I didn't want to try to lose the key function or lose the car because it wouldn't start.
