SOURCE: remote wont program

Is this the procedure u are using? this is from the factory manual.

ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.

1. Turn ignition to the RUN position (as far as you can go without starting the engine).
Wait for chimes to stop.
2. Using original programmed remote, press and hold the UNLOCK button on the
remote for between 5 and 10 seconds.
3. While holding UNLOCK button, and before 10 seconds passes, press and release
the PANIC button. A chime will sound to indicate that the transmitter programming
mode has been entered.
4. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press a button on all remotes to be programmed
into the system including any previously programmed remotes, a chime will
sound after each remote has been programmed.
5. Turn the ignition OFF to exit the transmitter programming mode.

6. Test Remotes

SOURCE: reprogram 2005 Dodge Durango key fob

Go to the dealer. It is the only way, they have to use a computer. Changing the battery doesn't make it lose it's program though. You most likely broke the battery hold down. This is the most common thing I see at my shop. If the key still starts the vehicle, you now have a bad key fob. If not, you may be able to get it reprogrammed.

You have either, a bad ignition switch, faulty ignition key tumbler or both. Try replacing the ignition switch first, it's cheaper.

Ignition key will not turn in my 2006 durango

You might have a worn out key and/or ignition lock cylinder. OR, you might have the steering column locked. Try turning the wheel hard to the left while turning the key, and then turning the wheel hard to the right and turn the key. Best of luck!

Key lock ignition won't turn. Does it have to do anything with the programming? or just mechanical failure? This is for a 2005 Dodge Durango. key ignition cylnder is stuck and won't turn.

Programming won't effect if it turns or not.

The most common problem is when there is feedback pressure from the tire against a curb, up hill, etc., and that causes the steering lock to bind the key cylinder. The solution for that is to try pushing both ways on the steering wheel, as you try to turn the key, to relieve the pressure.

The second most common is wear on the key, so it helps to jiggle the key side to side, up and down, etc. as you try to turn it.

Try turning the key upside down, using the spare, etc.

As an act of desperation, you could try putting the key in, and gently tapping on it with a piece of wood or the handle of a hammer. They are beginning to make ignition locks with tumblers spring operated, at right angles to the key, and they are very easily bound up by friction, because the springs are so small and weak. This was a very common problem with the Ford Focus, and I believe Dodge picked up the same bad design.

2001 dodge durango ignition switch is stuck in locked position

Your tumblers are worn. You can "Bump" the lock to get it to work, but this is a very temporary fix. To bump the lock, simply tap on the end of the key with something heavy like a short 2X4 , the heal of a shoe or something similar - while in the ignition while attempting to turn the key to the start position. DO NOT turn the engine back of until you get the car home or to a repair facility.

No Start No Crank

I am guessing here but I would check the installation of your new cylinder and the fusebox. It sounds like the key is turning to the running/accessory position but not switching all of the accesories on. The tumbler can get loose inside the steering column and not engage the start switch.
Background... I had the same problem with 1st generation Dakota. The old key tumbler had to be turned much further than normal to engage the ignition. I paid "5 star" Dodge service to replace the unit and now it works as long as you turn the key back to "running" position after it starts. After the Dodge dealer told me that my truck was too old for them to be familiar they offered to dig around for MORE MONEY. Your problem reminds me that they said something inside the column wears out and they may not be able to fix. I was not impressed, but it reminds me to ask a mechanic if he intends to finish the job for which I am paying him. Mechanics aren't happy about this but it saves me money.

Key won't turn in the ignition

if you tap on the lock cylinder with a small hammer it may jar it enough to get it to replace the tumblers you will need to remove the lock cylinder and then disassemble it. each tumbler has a certain number on it and will need replaced with that same number. it is easier to have it dealer or locksmith do it.
