Key will not go in the ignition

I used my car as always put it in park, shut it off, went in the house. The next morning my key will only go quarter to 1/2 of the way into the ignition. The car is in park....It had no signs of someone breaking in..I cant figure it out.

Key stuck in ignition


Hi,just food for thought,when you swich off engine and put it in park if you havent tried it already,put foot down on brake peddle and try takeing key out,if not try pressing on brake peddle and switch ignition on and off then see if key comes out.
I have to do this to my car sometimes to get key out hope it works for you.

Are you sure the battery cables are clean and tight on both ends?
You would need to use a meter or test light to follow the power from the battery to the break in the circuit.

Ignition feed fuse 16 blows when i turn on the key


Hi,
You have a 'short circuit' in the system or a bad ground somewhere. Go online and search on the Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler forums for this issue. I've read about myself but don't recall the common cause.

Ignition locks up!


Try spraying a little lubricant in there, if you haven't tried already, like silicone spray. Make sure you push hard into park & press brake pedal harder as well, and wiggle steering wheel hard.

Key sticks in ignition


I would say your ignition cylinder is worn out. get it replaced now, while the key still works. If you wait until it stops working all together, they will charge double because it will have to be cut off of the steering column instead of easily sliding it out. I wouldnt think the lights and door locks are related, just a bad coincedence.
