if your Car/Truck Key won't turn, here is a Quick fix -UNCUT
some ppl have asked to send me a donation for helping them out, thanks all that have donated, anything is appreciated: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=QJPVE9 UMV8SE4 If your key won't turn or is stuck, no matter how much you wiggle it, turn the steering wheel, or press the brake, then you might want to try this. But use as a last resort, at your own risk. This is pretty common in Jeeps, at first my key wont turn in the ignition, but if I wiggling it a little it will eventually work. I have been doing this for over a year now. Until today, no matter how much I wiggle the key, turn the steering wheel, press the brake, it will not turn. I'm totally locked. So I did some research and found out that it is the lock cylinder that has gone bad and I need to have a local locksmith replace it at a cost of about $120 in parts and $50 in labor. Another option is to tow it to a Jeep dealer and pay over $900 for a entire steering column. OR You can just take a hammer or rubber mallet and hit the end of the key, this will bent the copper latch piece allowing you to start your jeep.

By a DYI-er, for DYI-ers I apologize for the sorry camera. I don't have a good camera. My goal was to make it clear enough that you could tell what I was doing enough to determine what you need to do in your car. Also, the bumper music is mine. I'm just saying that because I can - I don't have to say that I don't own it, like I usually do. I wrote it, but only midied it. I don't plan to pay a band and a studio to record stuff for me that I probably won't make money off of. I have a real job that I don't plan to quit anytime soon, so I'm not in any way trying to be a pro here. I'm just posting this here for the love of DIY-ing and found something that no one else has done a video on at the time of this filming. So take it and use it for what it's worth to you.
