    My friends 05 Nissan Altima ignition is locked up. With no signs before of the ignitions problem the key will not turn to the ON/start position. I've already tried the basics like turning the steering wheel and reseting the alarm on the car. No fuses look to be blown. Any ideas on what could possibly be wrong? I am trying to fix this problem without having to take it into the shop or call a lock smith. I will if i have to though.

    Does your friend have a bunch of crap on his/her car key's keychain? Such as a keychain flashlight, keychain accessories, etc. Girls like to put a lot of crap on their key's keychains for some reason. That can potentially ruin the ignition. Did you also check the '05 Altima's recall list? Try to see if it says anyting about the ignition being recalled.

    I cannot think of the name of the part on this one so bare with me. On the ignition there is a device that relases the key. Some cars have it where you have to press a button to manually release the key. On my bravada i once had it where it would not release the key. just took of the plastics to get to the iginition and manually released it.
    N/A is the expensive way to go slow
