No, it's not gone yet.

I leave the key in - no chime.
I move and hold the key - chime.
I let go - no chime.

Is this thing on it's way out?

Thanks.

Take it from me, you don't want it to surprise you all of a sudden and go out. Mine went w/out warning and I was 200 miles from home! If you can turn the key you can remove it a lot easier then drilling a stuck ignition. I'd get it checked if it's acting funny.

Ooh hope you don't get it "frozen" or locked.

I couldn't turn the key and it was locked a couple months back. I was 30 miles from home and it took FOUR HOURS for the tow truck to get to me!


Anyways, have it checked. You really don't want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere when it happens.

Thanks for the replies.

I hate my dealership. Is the cylinder expensive and there is a local locksmith that I have used over the years in and out of the automobile business to have cylinders keyed.

Thanks again.
