Problems with ignition barrel locking in 1999 or so Commodores
talking to a mate I found out that a guy at his work is having the ignition barell replaced on their 1999 Commodore. They went to start it and they couldnt turn the key in the lock. The RAC came out and tried for an hour just to get it going, but couldnt - so now its in at a dealer having the ignition barrel replaced. Not so bad if you are going to start the car... the bad news is that apparently the steering wheel can lock when the car is actually driving!!! Not something you want to happen at 110km/h!
Its a wear thing and Commodores about 7 years old or so are having the problems. The comment was made that 'there's plenty of commodores in the wreckers because of this'...
has anyone heard about this or had their ignition barrel replaced for the same reason?
