How to remove my key lock 2000dodge caravan


Ignition Lock Cylinder - Removal & Installation CAUTION The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the air bag or SIR wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. In order to disarm the air bag system, allow the SIR system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures.
  3. Remove the screws that secure the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
  4. Remove the screws that secure the bottom of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
  5. Disengage the retaining clip that holds the right side of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
  6. Remove the lower steering column cover from the vehicle.
  7. Remove the mounting screws that hold the upper and lower steering column shrouds and remove the lower steering column shroud.
  8. Install the ignition key and turn the key cylinder to the RUN position. This is important because it will not only aid in removal of the ignition lock, but will also place the socket (in the lock cylinder housing) in proper alignment for the installation of the replacement ignition lock.
  9. Press in the lock cylinder retaining tab and remove the key cylinder (ignition lock).

    4045958.jpg
    Fig. Depress the retaining tab to remove the key cylinder

  2. Align the shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder with the socket in the end of the ignition lock cylinder housing.
  3. Align the ignition lock cylinder with the grooves in the lock cylinder housing. Push the ignition lock cylinder into the housing until the retaining tab sticks through the opening in the lock cylinder housing.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position and remove the key.
  5. Install the lower steering column shroud and install the mounting screws.
  6. Place the lower steering column cover into correct position on the lower instrument panel and engage the clip that secures the right side of the cover to the instrument panel.
  7. Install the lower steering column mounting screws.
  8. Install the mounting screws that hold the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
