The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

 

Condition/Concern

Some dealers may report difficulty installing the new style ignition lock cylinder.

 

Recommendation/Instructions

Before installing the new cylinder it is important to carefully inspect the housing for debris or damage from the old lock cylinder. No tools are required for installing the new lock cylinder. When installing into the housing, ensure that the lock cylinder is fully seated to ensure it latches into position.

DO NOT use the old style lock cylinder that is still used on the manual transmission vehicle on an automatic transmission car. The original binding condition will likely return.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
