I went out to move the car and the I put the key into the ignition and the sterring lock disengaged but I couldnt turn the key, I then striped the outer casing off of the ignition switch and managed to turn on the ignition, I got ignition lights but the car will not start, The ignition has been playing up as somtimes the steering lock has been tempramental. but if I left the key in for a second the lock would disengage and the car would start but It wont now Do I need a new ignition switch, and if so could I source one from a scrappy and will it need programed to the car?

or is there anyway I can by pass all the systems so I can use the car untill I can get another bit switch from the stealers? I have to travel down to northants for a wedding on thursday and I am desperate for advice

Assuming that the problem persists with your spare key it does sound like an EIS problem.

As far as I am aware there is no way to circumvent the system.

I don't know whether you can use the system from a scrap car.

I am a silly billy! I have sourced the whole ignition system from a guy breaking a clk320 so I think I will be back on the road very soon, in my wee bomb
And I have to thank every one who has given me advice
