Need help in the outer banks NC ASAP. Key won't turn
Does anyone on here live anywhere near the outer banks in North Carolina? My family and I are on vacation at a rental home and after arriving safely on Saturday night, I hadn't touched the car again until Tuesday. The key will not turn in the ignition now! It's the old bad tumbler issue and it appears that I am now in the dreadful situation that so many have warned about.
I have my spare keys being shipped to me and a new tumbler, ignition switch and steering lock mechanism on the way from Pelican Parts. The problem is, if I can't get any of the other keys to turn, I am totally screwed.
If there is a forum member anywhere near 27949, I would try to have the car towed to them for extra help. Thanks!
