    Key and ignition problems

    Hi Guys,

    I have started getting some issues with my car ignition and hope the knowledge pool here can help.

    The issue only seems to appear in an afternoon / evening, I unlock my car with the remote, get in and put the key in the ignition and nothing happens. I don't get any click from the steering lock, no key not recognised warnings or anything and the key won't turn, when I pull the key out the switch my doors normally lock then unlock but that doesn't happen either. Once I then put my key back in it works perfectly as normal and won't repeat it until the next day.

    I have tried my spare key and it's still the same, I keep meaning to try using my finger to press the button to see if it's the same but keep forgetting.

    My big concern is it going on me all together while away on a trip somewhere, anyone had this before?

    Many thanks

    Sorry, I typed this on my phone at dinner and forgot to put that when this happens I can't turn the key either so I can't start the car.

    I have toyed with the idea of taking it out, stripping them down and cleaning it but didn't want to chance breaking it and having the car stuck unable to move it.

    Maybe I'll have a go at the weekend.
