I recently received a second hand ignition switch from Motoworks but the key would only move from off to park,

as I could remove the key in both positions.

The key would not move to the ignition " on" position which locks the key in the barrel.

The key supplied was not the original..

Could the issue have been with the key ?

A second unit was received and all okay.

Bob

It's the wrong key for that lock.

Thanks Duck.

I presume someone had got the keys mixed up, but at least the second unit is all good.

Will send first one back, and let them hunt around for the the right key.

Guy said they are looking into a manufacturer supplying new ones, as a lot are getting old and failing
