This problem occurs because of a defect in the steering lock release trigger which is located inside the barrel itself.
Over time, this trigger wears down resulting in the barrel ‘grabbing’ onto the key blade and preventing you from removing it. Most of the time this will leave scoring marks on the key.
Common symptoms of this issue include;
– Ignition barrel grabbing onto the key
– Central locking on key may not work
– Scoring marks starting to appear on the blade of the key.
Yes we can! This is a problem that we are now seeing almost daily on affected models of Nissan.
Rather than replace the ignition barrel in it’s entirety, we are able to replace the faulty component and reassemble, fixing the issue – at a fraction of the price of a new ignition barrel from Nissan. All repairs come with a 12 month warranty included.
Alongside the repair to the ignition barrel, we also recommend replacing the fixed metal blades in your remote keys.
