Key would have to be jiggled to get tumblers in correct position to turn car on. Did not wait for it to fail completely as it would have been more exspensive to repair as the key needs to be in a certain position to remove the entire unit. $700 later it's repaced and repaired. Had to be done by repair shop as ther are special tool and small hands that are needed to do the repair. If you are having this problem, get the work done before it completely fails.
The switch will not turn at all. For some time, it was difficult, but eventually it would turn after a number of attempts. One day it stopped altogether.
