    Sounds like your ignition barrel just ****ed up, i had the same thing happen on my old VS.
    Best to give a locksmith a call
     
  5. this happened to me to, ignition barrel snapped mate, call either holden or a lock smith. its common my mates ss did the same like 2 weeks before mine. i got out of it for only 120 bucks including towing costs cause i know someone but probly cost about 250 plus towing to where its getting fixed

    Had mine replaced this week cost me $140 at a local locksmith, went to go home from work one night when it locked up on me , managed to get it working after 15 frantic minutes..so i decided to get it replaced just to be on the safe side, even though it was ok for two days after.
