Testimonial: "sorry i didn't mention that when i bought the new ignition lock cylinder, after i locked it out, i actually took all the tumbler pins out, to allow my original keys to work, and so currently anything will turn it. I then proceeded to follow the steps i said previously and then tried reprogramming the key per instruction manual. So i am still using the original keys. The car won't start with the original keys ( i have 2). Even though the p0513 code is cleared out. I didn't know if i messed up the pcm or something"

SOURCE: 2005 v6 dodge magnum wont start.
Your battery is probably ready to be replaced. It needs a long slow charge or when you try to jump start with another car, you need to leave the jumper cables on for 20 or 30 mins at least. This will bring up the level of your battery and perhaps it will start.
For future reference the only true measure of a battery;s condition is by measuring the state of the electrolyte in the battery. To do this you need 2 things. Onew is a small charger. Not a bad thing to have with winter coming on. You can get one for under $30. The second thing is a hydrometer. This is a meter that tells you the specific gravity of a batteries electrolyte> you can get on for under $5. To use this device you take the covers off the top on the battery, put the rubber tube into the battery and draw up some liquid.. A reading in the green is good condition. One has to check all 6 cells, because what typically happens is 4 od 5 cells will check good and the others will not. TIME to replace the battery.BTW, these measurements should always be made after the battery has been charged.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating Thanksl

check the adjustment on the switch rod try to start the engine by removing the rod and moving the ignition switch with a tool sounds like the rack in the column has slipped

no if you took it to autozone obviously you have a good ign coil.im sure you have tried turning the wheel at the same time you turn your key. other than that i would replace the lock cylinder and key.

there is a pin that comes from the lock cylinder that goes through a hole in the switch and locks it in.normaly you have to turn key to on and tap the pin back inside the cylinder. if you cant turn to on then there is no recess for the pin to tap into.
hers what i do
take the key out
lay it on a vise or similar but lay it on a part of the cylinder not the switch
bash that pin in untill it clears the hole in the swtch
or drill it out, either way you want
the new cylinders, at least those bought from the dealer or not coded that means no wafers or springs are installed
you have to transfer your wafers and springs over to new one in the proper sequence i recomend new ones cause the old ones are worn out along with the key and you will soon if not imediatly have the same problem
just take your old and new cyl. to dealer parts dept. the guy at the counter can code it for you and cut a new key by code. it dont cost that much and its worth it
