Holden Commodore Jammed Ignition Repairs & Replacements


Experiencing problems with your Holden Commodore? Your ignition jammed or plain not working?

The Lock Guy Automotive Locksmiths are specialists in Holden Commodore ignitions, and we are happy to assist you with your Jammed Commodore Ignition or Commodore ignition replacements.

Holden Commodore VE

Some of the common issues with Holden Commodore Ignitions & Jamming:

  • Your key goes into your ignition, but the ignition key will not turn
  • Your key has inserted and turned in the ignition but is now stuck on accessories
  • Your key is jammed in the ignition, and you cannot get it out
  • Your key turns in the ignition and has lost spring tension and motor will not turn over
  • Commodore new ignition key
  • Problems with the steering column, steering lock or steering lock because of the ignition
  • Your key stuck in ignition (Holden) ?

So what can we do?

The Lock Guy Mobile Locksmiths will come to you when your Holden ignition fails and will repair or replace your ignition on the spot. If your Keys are not too worn, we can change your Commodore Ignition barrel over with a genuine Holden barrel replacement and key up to your existing keys.

We can also replace the lock cylinder after the ignition lock cylinder removal from the existing car ignition.

If your key is worn, we can cut a new key to code on our computerised Silca Viper and the Silca Futura Pro Machines. These Hitech Machines are the latest in groundbreaking electronic key cutting machines and are installed in our mobile vans to save you time and get you back on the road quickly.

At The Lock Guy, we like to use Genuine Holden ignitions as the aftermarket Ignitions have proven to fail quite quickly as the quality is not as superior as the Genuine Holden Ignitions.  There is no need to go through your Holden Dealer or to call a tow truck as The Lock Guy offers a full Mobile Service in Melbourne which is not only professional but affordable too.

Makes and models which commonly experience problems with their ignitions:

  • VR Holden Commodore (1993-1995)
  • VS Holden Commodore (1995-1997)
  • VT Holden Commodore (1997-2000)
  • VX Holden Commodore (2000-2002) (As well as black model)
  • VY Holden Commodore (2002-2004)
  • VZ Holden Commodore (2004-2006)
