Re: Ignition won't turn.
U WILL NEED TO TRY LUBING THE LOCK CYLINDER 1ST WITH POWDERED GRAPHITE LOCK CYLINDER LUBE FROM ANY HARDWARE STORE, IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT U WILL NEED THE LOCK REPLACED. NEVER USE ANY TYPE OF OIL IN A LOCK CYLINDER.

its sounds like a bad ignition switch-try to jiggle it and see if its stop after you have turned key off- also those dinging sounds are to warn you that you have left something on -usually headlights or maybe even your dome lights which would account for your battery dying
It's probably your ignition not being exactly disconnected when you remove the key.Until you get a new ignition (keyswitch),just jiggle the switch with your fingers after you remove the ke7y and see if the dinging stops. my Aerostar has that problem right now. don-ohio
Apparently the computer "thinks" that the key is in the ignition. This can be verified by scanning the body controller data while it is doing this. You will most likely end up having to replace your ignition switch to fix it. Also, if the ignition switch is replaced, the computer will have to be reprogrammed to accept the new ignition switch. Otherwise, you will have problems with your security system and the car will not start.
The tumblers are Bad in the Cylinder Lock.. Its common for Chevy.. Esp if ya have a lot of keys hanging off the key chain.. It Speeds up the wear on the guts of the tumbler because of the weight of the keys constantly working the key mechanism.. Hope this Helps.. Thank you.. Shop242
ok well here's the thing. This key has not been used before. The keys are cut to the specs of the ignition so they may be undercut so to speak. I know on my car i can turn it upside down it will work. But on the other hand it could just possibly be a back up for when you lock your keys in your car (not likely but it's still possible). You can keep putting your key in and out a bunch of times and **** the steering wheel back and forth as you turn the key to get it used to the ignition switch. See if that works and if not i will see what i can come up with in the meantime for this exact car.
how warn down are the keys? from wear and tear the do eventually wear down till they dont work try that, or if it is cold out side then try putting it in some heat it could be froze if that dont work.... BUY A DODGE!!! lol
