    2003 Ody Lock cylinder Sticking

    I have a 2003 Ody and the key was sticking in the ignition. I tried some WD40 and that worked for a few days. Then it started to stick again and not let me turn the key. I bought some Lock Ease graphite stuff and shot it in there. Waited a few days and still have the same issue.
    I am unable to turn the key at all now. I have 1 other key that we have only used 2-3 times since we we got the vehicle years ago and it wont work either.

    So here is my question.

    1. Does 2003 have immobilizer on the ignition?

    2. If I buy a new ignition from Autozone it comes with a set of keys and the lock cylinder and the outside mount. Now if my van has an immobilizer, does installing a new setup require me to program the computer or does it come as a set. I guess what I am asking is if the immobilizer and key are setup as one or does the computer store the information?

    3. Do I need any special tools to remove the ignition and lock cylinder?

    Thanks all!!

    I'm having the same exact isue on my 2003 Odyssey!

    The dealer wants $480 to install a new tumbler, BUT that will come with a new key, so it won't match the keys in the door and trunk! AND that means my 3rd party auto-starter will need a nw key as well. This is crazy.

    Seems they are too indept on being able to just install a new tumbler and key it the same as the old.

    I called around and found a Locksmith place in The Bronx that says theyc an repair it for $100 in a few hours.

    I suggest you call some large locksmiths in ghigh crime areas nar you, they likely deal with a lot of replacement ignition switch repair. :-)

    I'll let you know how it goes. Plase do the same.
