SOURCE: Battery replaced on 2001 grand dodge caravan now radio dont work

U will need to enter the radio anti theft code, this lock out was triggered by the loss of voltage to the radio during the battery change, this code is unique to each radio and cam in the owners information packet when the cat was sold new.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge durango ignition switch is stuck in locked position

Your tumblers are worn. You can "Bump" the lock to get it to work, but this is a very temporary fix. To bump the lock, simply tap on the end of the key with something heavy like a short 2X4 , the heal of a shoe or something similar - while in the ignition while attempting to turn the key to the start position. DO NOT turn the engine back of until you get the car home or to a repair facility.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge caravan key will not turn can not

The tumblers in the lock cylinder are stuck and this prevents the key from turning. Spray some lubricant into the cylinder, insert the key in and out numerous times and also hit the end of the key with a rubber hammer while it is in the cylinder and this will help to release the tumblers.

Ignition key will not turn


if the steering wheel is in a bind against the lock the key will not turn easily if at all. try rocking the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. be firm with the wheel, you're not gonna hurt anything. not to much pressure on the key, forcing the key wont help.

My 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what


OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

I have a 98 dodge caravan and when i put the key


You may have to get a new key cut if the tumblers in the ignition lock are not being lined up to unlock the ignition. If the key's was bent in the ignition lock, the ignition lock may be bad and need to be replaced with a new ignition key. Try replacing the ignition key's first, but if you have a spare key. Try that first and if the spare key's don't turn the ignition lock, then you may have to replace the ignition lock. Good luck and keep me posted. oh and try moving the steering wheel left to right as you try to turn the ignition lock.
