If you tap on the lock cylinder with a small hammer it may jar it enough to get it to turn.....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.

Is there an easy online guide to changing out the ignition tumbler in a 1992 dodge caravan?


Hi,
First remove the plastic 2 piece shroud around steering column so as to gain access to the housing the tumbler sits in. Find three Phillips screws to remove in holes in the lower piece.
Turn the ignition key to the Run position. Insert a small tip screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the housing to push the spring-loaded tab which will free the tumbler so you can simply pull the tumbler out with the key.
Installation is the reverse. Be sure tumbler with key inserted is set to the Run position.
Depress spring-loaded tab, insert tumbler into housing hole with tab down. All the way in,
Turn key to the Lock or turn it off.


Let us know if you want something more else please accept the suggestion.

Providing the numbers on the ECM are a match, and the plug ins are the same, you can interchange them. Vehicles with a security chip on the ignition key, also require you to change the ignition key and tumbler assembly, to match the computer.
