Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.


Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 and i changed the starter, crank position sensor, tried a different ignition but the ignition still would not turn the engine over... Im thinking about wiring up a push start...


unless you have the key fob also,you need a new ignition switch,with key fob and key with a chip in it,the switch turns on the fuel pump when the chip is recognized,take it to someone that knows what they are doing,you CANNOT hotwire it.

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.
