Trouble getting key to turn

I have a 2001 Chrysler 300m that I'm experiencing problems getting the key to turn. I have also tried the spare key. It is in park and the steering wheel is not locked. It takes about 5 minutes of trying and it will finally turn. Help???

Sounds like the tumblers in the lock cylinder are sticking....try spraying like wd 40 in where the key goes in and see if that helps. you may need a new lock cylinder

Problem with 1999 Chrysler 300M My Chrysler 300m


If the engine doesn't turn over, it may be the solenoid not operating and not engaging the dog on the starter motor, if you get a healthy clunk when you turn the key but the engine does not turn, could be seized or there could be a transmission lock issue.

Could be a security problem, the starter, or the neutral safety switch.
Someone would need to check for power at the starter terminals.

    Unlock Instructions ignition for Chrysler 300M


    This happened with my 2000 Ford Focus. To Unlock the ignition, put the car key in, and hit it gently with a hammer. The ignition tumbler will lock again when you take out the key, so have a hammer handy if you go somewhere :P.It happened to me on November 7th, the tow truck driver came, did this, and started the with no problems.

    We have a 2003 chrysler 300m. Shut car off this morning and now key will not turn ignition switch


    You might try turning your steering wheel back and forth and maybe changing your tilt while trying to turn the key. It sounds like your steering wheel lock is stuck which is common. Sometimes it just takes playing with it to get it to turn. Another problem that causes this is the gear selector not being in the right spot causing it not to let the ignition turn. Hope this helps and good luck!

    2001 Chrysler 300M Engine Light on all the time


    Hello, my engine light was on for a VERY LONG time and everytime I got it checked no one could tell me what the problem was because things always checked out fine. The "code" says its a loose gas cap or something, but it wasnt that. My 300M also was having A HARD TIME STARTING UP for about 8 months and leaking coolant for about a month. I finally found a mechanic who knew what he was doing; 1. Leaking Radiator 2. Coolant found in #2 or #3 cylinder. The cause of this was a busted HEAD GASKET. If your 300M has trouble starting and the Engine light stays on have a mechanic check your engine for a busted head gasket and see if all your cylinders are firing correctly. I had to pay $2600 for a new Head Gasket, Radiator and all new hoses plus labor. CRYING!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a 2001 300M 130K - very well kept. Stuff happens...

    I can't seem to remove my spare tire


    what part is troubling you? If you're looking for the location where you lower the tire, there's a little black door on the bumper, next to the license plate that you have to open, then there's usually a lock to remove with your key, then you insert the tire iron and turn the only direction that it will turn. This will lower the tire so you can get it off the cable, raise it back up, and be on your way.

    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.
