Cause of ignition trouble? matt 5-2-03  
My girlfriend was talking to a ford mechanic, and this mechanic told her that weight on her key chain can cause ignition trouble. I was wondering if any of you can confirm this. ( she basically has a mini wallet, which she keeps her drivers license, ans student ID in) could this "small" amount of weight cause ignition trouble?

Yes it can. I have seen several vehicles that failed to start as a result of weight on the key.

Yes the weight will wear on lock tumblers on top and make key grids smooth in time but not for several years depending on weight
