Lock cylinder is in lock position cant get it to turn to acc what can i do


have you tried another key? also if your steering wheel is turned in either direction when key was last removed, you may need to wiggle the steering wheel while trying to turn the key, with newer electronic steering, the column sometimes gets stuck.

Need to replace power steering sencer


Not difficult to do. I had to do this for my 2002 neon. Go to your local parts store and buy a "power steering pressure switch"...should be around 20-25 dollars. It's located under the car near the driver side of the steering rack. All you need to do is unplug the wire, then use a 7/8" deep socket to remove the old switch. When installing the new one, use teflon thread seal tape on the threads and tighten snug but not too tight. Plug the wire back in and you're done. Afterwards, start the car and turn the wheel lock to lock a few times, then check for any leaking (the sensor itself can be seen from under the hood...look down behind the motor with a flashlight). Make sure the power steering fluid is at the correct level afterwards too. Good luck.

Have a 2002 dodge neon and the ignition locked up i had it towed and the tow truck driver told me it was my ignition switch... this isint the first time this has happened so after i got it home i just...


Inside the steering column the ignition switch ties in with the steering and shifter lock. The lock plate will sometimes get off center/ out of alignment especially if the wheels aren't straight. This can make everything lockup. If more jiggling doesn't help, you may have to remove the steering wheel and ignition lock, align or replace the lock plate (if damaged) It could also be that the casing on the ignition lock cracked or broke and part of it has jammed in there.

How do i unlock my steering wheel on my 2003 e250 it makes the pinging noise when i open the door but the key is not in it


Assuming your truck starts and runs fine, then the problem id the Key Warning "Switch" It's really not a switch, but just a copper tab that grounds to the key when it is inserted. It either came unseated and is grounding out on the steering colimn, or brole off and is grounding. You can do a couple of things:

Remove the plastic steering column cover to expose the key tumbler

Then, locate the grounding tab. It is at the end of a small black wire.

Then, either :

1. Clip it back on

2. Tie wrap it back on if the clip is broke.

3. Order a new one from the dealer and replace it.

4. Use electrical tape to keep it from grounding or just snip it off and don't worry about having the Key In chime.

2003 DOGE NEON IGNITION .LIGHTS, POWER COMES ON BUT CAR WILL NOT START AFTER I PLAY WITH IGNITION SEVERVAL TURING AND PUSHING IT IN SEVERAL TIMES IT THEN STARTS


replace the ignition switch
The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
f32-17gif.gif The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

2003 Dodge Neon Code P0551 and Rough Idle


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 DODGE NEON. THE FIX WAS TO REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE SENSOR SWITCH. IF YOU DO IT YOURSELF IT WILL PROBABLY COST ABOUT $50 OR $60 INCLUDING THE HAYNES MANUAL TELLING YOU HOW TO DO IT. I BELIEVE THE SWITCH COST ME ABOUT $30 OR $35 FROM A DODGE DEALER. IT IS PRETTY SIMPLE. TAKE OFF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION GOING TO THE SWITCH AND THEN TAKE OUT THE SWITCH ITSELF WITH A PROPER SIZED WRENCH. THE SWITCH IS THREADED INTO A CONNECTION ATTACHED TO METAL HOSES THAT HAVE POWER STEERING FLUID IN THEM. HAVE THE NEW SWITCH READY TO PUT IN AFTER THE OLD ONE COMES OUT,FOR POWER STEERING FLUID WILL FLOW OUT OF THE CONNECTION. PUT THREAD TAPE ON THE THREADS OF THE NEW CONNECTION. THIS WIIL HELP TO SEAL THE SWITSH FROM LEAKS. TORQUE TO SPECS AND REINSTALL THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION. CLEAR THE CODE AND SEE IF IT COMES BACK. MINE DID NOT. OH YES, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE SOME POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOP OFF ANY THAT LEAKS OUT DURING THIS PROCESS.
GOOD LUCK!

2004 dodge neon key will not turn in the ignition , it was working well then today I started the car drove for a while stopped and when i tried to put the key in a start the car , the key will not turn ,...


It could be the tumblers in the switch, possibly a worn out key(try another key if you have one) or the steering may be in a bind, are the front tires against a curb.

While trying to turn the key try to turn the steering wheel in both directions.

Let me know what you find.

Engine died and turns over when moving steering wheel left and right


it sounds like your ignition switch is failing and when you turn the wheel sometimes the steering lock pin is jolting the switch and making a momentary contact, you should try turning the key to the on position and jumping a 12 volt signal wire from the battery to the small wire on the starter (only until it starts do not leave this connected constantly) to confirm this is the switch for sure check for 12 volts out of the switch in the start position (it may be intermittent also) good luck and please rate -jeff here is your part click here 2ea336d.jpeg
