Question: HAVE 2004 BUICK RENDEZVOUS AND AM HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THE KEY IN AND OUT? I'VE BEEN HAVING A LITTLE LUCK WITH A FINGER NAIL FILE! IS THIS USUALLY A CONTINUING ISSUE? ABOUT HOW MUCH SHOULD IT COST TO FIX?
Answer: This problem will just get worse over time. Eventually you not be able to get the key in or out. The problem is in the ignition key cylinder. It will have to be replaced. I suggest going to a very reputable shop because the theft sensor module will need to be removed in order to replace the cylinder and is is easy to break. Expect to pay about $250 for parts and labor to make this repair.
