Got off 12 hour shift.
Goto start car, key isn’t turning. Weird, steering wheel not locked?
Forced turn and starts. Okay cool…drive home. Park in driveway, key won’t turn off…literally jammed / locked and car is running lol.
Mechanic said bring down. They can’t remove key, instead, unplug fuel injectors? (4 fuses) to shut off, unplug battery. They’re busy so I left car there.
Best case: key has gone bad, need to use backup now.
Worst case/realistic: ignition has gone. Will wake up to a frigging 700 dollar repair
Any car expert OGers who can give their input?
Car is 11 yo Jetta w 156k…runs great and is my beater, been paid off for over 6 years. Not interested in a new car or payment…
Going to bed…go back tonight. Hope I get some good feedback and laughs…this place is a great therapy. Goodnight.
