The tumbler/wafers in the switch are bad, if your friend takes and taps on
the key as he is turning it, it may turn and come out. The key has to be tap
as you want to make it go further into the switch while you turn it. The
cylinder is easy to remove but it has to be recoded with new
wafers/tumblers. This is assuming that he is not having a problem with the
shift linkage on the floor.
Thanks. I think we will try to replace the switch. I've never doen
that before but another mechanic emailed me and said just push up
through the access hole in the shroud as you turn the key.
The shift linkage seems ok but that mechanic also said the shift
interlock might be preventing the key from going to the full off
position (which is what it feels like). Your information was very
helpul. Thanks again.
