Re: do my 2004 dodge intrepid have a kill switch?
Your dodge has an antitheft system that shuts down the ignition and fuel system when the lock was tampered with. This is why they did not take the car your anti theft system did exactly what it was designed to do. You will need to get it to the dealer to get the system reset.

Hi Robert, I'm glad to help. Here's how to remove and replace the Ignition Switch on your 2003 Dodge Intrepid. FIRST: remove the steering wheel shaft covers that rest over your ignition swtch. Once the covers are removed you now have access to the screws that hold the ignition switch in place. NOW: unplug the electrical connector, then take out the screws that hold it in place. NEXT: You'll need to turn the key to the proper position to release the switch while pulling the switch backward. Once its out install the new one and your done. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Robert.
When you removed the alarm unit you cut the line to the Starter kill switch that was installed. Remove the starter kill switch which is most likely located under the dash spliced into the ignition wiring harness.
I had a similar problem several years ago with my 1993 Dodge intrepid. None of the instruments on the dash would work. When this would happen the transmission would not shift past second gear. My heater blower was Not running all the time. What I found was the wiring harness to the ignition switch did not have enough slack in it. This was causing the ignition switch plug to randomly lose contact with the ignition switch. The first thing you need to do is remove the steering column covers. Put the tilt steering all the way up. Look under the steering column cover. There are 2 phillips head screws and 3 recessed T-10 torx tip screws that hold the 2 halves of the cover together and to the steering column. Remove all 5 screws. The handle used to tilt the steering wheel also has to be removed. You will need a T-30 torx tip to remove it. Now carefully remove the bottom half of the cover. The ignition switch wiring harness is under the steering column. I just reached in under the column and gently pulled on the harness until it had a little slack when I left go. Make sure the ignition switch plug is plugged in all the way. You might even want to unplug it and plug it back in several times just in case a slight film of corrosion has accumulated on any of the electrical terminals. This will help clean it off. You could also look inside the plug to make sure none of the terminals are bent or pushed part way out the back. I hope this solves your problem. Mine has not reoccurred in the 8 years since I did this.
lock and tumbler (key switch) remove steering wheel remove clockspring remove set screw remove switch...lower column ignition switch remove 2 screws and the rod unplug from harness replace in reverse just watch the rod placement
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
dear friend-i think you must first try to press the switch with the hand and see if it works.you have to remove the panel of the door remove the screws on the outside with a inpact screwdriver,replace with new one.
hey all you do is go down to like napa or autozone and tell them u need the complete ignition switch and the diagram to install it and then you are set. you dont need any special tool to do this or anything.
