E36 Ignition Cylinder Lock Issue
Hello - new to this site.. Daughter borrowed car and key locked in the off position but the car was still running. Before I could get home to pull the fuel pump fuse to kill the car, the car had overheated blowing the radiator tank gasket, obvious sensor issue. Don't want to spend the money on the ignition yet, if I now have a damaged engine.
Anyway, the key wont turn at all to get in the acc position to remove the cylinder lock. Read a thread where someone had used a screwdriver to force into this position, and then remove the cylinder lock. Well, it's free spinning now and I can't get out.
Would like to look into installing a pushbutton start, but am concerned about the steering locking up or not being able to shift the transmission since the cylinder lock is obviously fubar'd. Should this be a concern and / or any suggestions?
