Re: Modus ignition key prob

Never (I know It's too late) Oil a lock, dust sticks to it & stops the wards working. Contact cleaner, as you have found, has cleaned & lubricated enough to make it work. I would a) leave it alone now & b) ask a qualified Locksmith what to do next. As the key is working, now is the best time for his / her attention.
Some locks can have their barrels changed without removal from the car.
