Default Key won't turn Ignition column locked up in cold weather

Just thought to add this little tidbit, another Range Rover experience.

Got coooold here the last few days, -3 overnight,

Got into the RR to get coffee downtown, key would not turn to save my life, thought the steering column might have been jammed, tried everything, then put facts together, COLD.

Put an electric heater in the car for 30 minutes, went out to try the key and MAGIC, it turned.

Spoke to the mechanic who works on this and my Audi and he said he has had the same thing happen with his RR, thought it needed a new switch but then realized it was the cold.

Any thoughts?

That is so odd! I have never heard of that happening in any car.

I agree, odd is the word, but the mechanic that I bought it from said he recalled when it did it to him, and when another one did it also.

BTW. this mechanic is excellent, he has worked on my Audi's etc for years and has the best rep in the Connecticut Area.

That is a new one. Oh yeah, my Audi guy won't touch my RR. But my Rover guy will reluctantly work on Audi's. Go figure.......
