Re: i got a problem with the key ignition

So if I understand you right…..it won't start unless you turn it to 3…but it doesn't start all the time? Or are you saying you have to turn it past "3" It should start at 3, and then come back to On. If that's not what you were asking….could you clarify?

Re: i got a problem with the key ignition

Ok check it out bro. I got a 91 si. Same thing happened to me. I couldn't start it at all with my key. But all my electronics worked. I just bought some twelve gage wire and a little 15amp push start button from oriellys and made a bypass switch to star the car. If ur interested in details let me know.

Re: i got a problem with the key ignition

Re: i got a problem with the key ignition

To tell you the truth dude…I haven't heard of something like this happening before…So I don't really know how to fix it. If I were you I would get a new ignition switch…But that's just me.
