Ignition key will not start truck - 1993 dodge dakota

Key goes all the way clockwise without any "return spring" action and does not energize starter. I replaced the switch module but the new part does exactly what the old one did. I cant locate any mechanical reason
for this in the steering column - don't know where to go to find problem

My 97 geo prism starts when you put the car to ignite but after that it won't stay running what could it be


First turn of the key energize the car electrical circuits for some circuits radio ets. 2nd turn of the key energize the the starting cycle, when you turn the key to the third spring loaded start mode it completes the circuit to the starter solenoid which engages the starter and start the car, the spring in ignition return the key to ignition on.
Maybe you have a malfunction in the ignition on position. Dont have a large bunch of keys hanging in your ignition, it sings back and forth when the car is in the start mode and cause havoc to your ignition switch.

Can push start truck runs fine battery good when you turn key lights and buzzer work but there is no resistance against key when you turn it on. bad starter or ignition


With the information given I would tend to say it is a bad ignition cylinder. I would look into getting in touch with your local dealership to see if they can order you a replacement cylinder.

Hopefully that helps!

Can i order a key for a 1993 dodge dakota


You can call a dodge dealer, give them the vin# and
they used to be able to cut you a key from that.
But if that method is obsolete, you can try this.
If your key was original equipment, roll the window up
and remove the door panel. Remove the clip from the
linkage rod on the door lock. Remove the spring clip
from the door lock assy. and remove the lock.
The door and ignition lock use the same key. Take
the door lock to a locksmith and they will make a
key for you. Hope this helps.
