Ignition Switch problem.....

my ignition switch is acting up, locking up, not letting me have the key, not letting me start the car and at first i thought it was me but now it's really starting to piss me off, and its happening more and more, and the recall has been fixed if that was the problem, so im wondering what the heck is going on and if there is something i can do about it.

Seems like the tumblers are all out of wack. Has your car been broken into? You can try using some WD40 or some type of lock ease stuff. But it sounds like you'll need to replace the switch

you should probly of tried some spray graphite on it cuz wd-40 is a lubricant that could cause electrical problems in the switch.

Well you should be fine if not just spray some compressed air in there. I guess the lock ease stuff is a graphite lubricant.
