It is super hard to get my key in and out of the ignition. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with an aftermarket alarm system? If I need a new ignition, does that mean I have to change all the locks on the entire rover? Seems like a pain.
A keyway would have nothing to do with any alarm system. A $2 bit of graphite power after a good cleaning will do wonders. Remove the shroud, flood hte ignition with starter fluid, MAF cleaner or carb cleaner then use the graphite power after things have dried out. DO NOT USE anything with a lubricating quality like WD-40.
