Is there some specific lube to use on the ignition switch? (Maybe graphite or???)
Mine is beginning to feel tighter than it used to....maybe the key is wearing out?


Thanks.

Any auto parts store will have lock & cylinder lube. It's graphite based and comes in powder (dip your key in and then put in lock & turn), spray (fast drying medium to carry graphite into the lock cyliner) or liquid (I wouldn't use this in the ignition cylinder, but great for padlocks, etc. Another thing that can make your ignition start to drag is a worn out key. Try your spare and see if it's any better.
