The last few days I haven't been able to turn the key at all. I've tried making sure the steering wheel isn't locked, I've tried spraying out the hole with air to clean it. It's like something is sticking. Sometimes my husband can start it. But it takes a couple tries. I feel like I have to be the hulk just to turn my car key.
I bought 2 new tires 2 months ago. 205/55/15 on front as opposed to 205/60/15 on rear for a rake look. I am doing to buy 205/55/15 for rear as well shortly. could this be problem? Can I remove main power switch for a minute and replace? HELP!

Bought car used in 2009. I was given the 5 digit radio code and it has worked before. Never had the security code. Is this something I can get from a dealer? Security Led flashes and code led is lit on the radio. Code is also on the display.
When the engine is turned on the SRS light goes off but it comes back and stay on
It came on very suddenly. If acceleration is faster it seems to minimize the issue. I am noticing now it does it occasionally right as I start 2 - 5 MPH. It clearly feels like a transmission issue.
My car cranks up when it wants to, could this be related to the oxygen sensor or three way catalytic converter because my battery good
