I'll bet it isn't the lock itself but the little plastic eletrical switch
that mounts behind it ... it's not too difficult to replace and I seem to
recall paying under $10 for a universal VW/Audi one from BAP. I had this
happen to me in two different 4ks and both times it was the switch rather
than the ignition lock that was broken.
