Greetings to all, I have an 05 Equinox LS that is giving me ignition key probs. Acts like a worn key. Will not turn in the cylinder. If you have someone rock the vehicle back and forth, it will turn and start the engine. Sounds like an adjustment needs to be made somewhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Have you contacted your local dealership regarding your concern? There are many benefits to taking a vehicle to your local dealership. You can guarantee that technicians are certified and that the parts come with a GM parts warranty. For these reasons, I would recommend taking the vehicle to your local dealership to be diagnosed. They should be able to assist you further and have a plan for addressing the issue. I can also look into this issue further. In order to do more research, I will need some more specific information from you such as your name, address, phone number, the VIN for the vehicle, and current mileage. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me either on the thread or via private message. Thank you.

Tricia, GM Customer Service.

My 2006 Equinox has ignition problems...the key will not turn which has left me stranded at times. I see that this is a known problem with that year. Why wasn't it a recall and what suggestions are there to fix it other than paying a dealership to diagnose the problem of which we already know what's wrong.

So far I have this problem starting on my 06 EquinoxLS 70,000 miles. I found by rapidly jiggleling the key rabidly. Pay attention as you originally turn the key where it get stuck. This is your starting point. (Target) Then as you "On Off On Off" (Back and Forth) Also wiggle the whole cylinder. Paying most attention to having the key fall forward into the on position. Wish I could post this as a video. GM dosent have a attention letter out on this. (For the public that is) They may have something for the dealers. I did find replacement cylinder (AC/Delco) at auto parts $50. Now to set it in.
