SOURCE: Ignition will not turn

we had the same issue with ours a few weeks back, i was prepared to remove the key assembly. i started disassembling the steering column and removed all the trim, and while removing all the trim and the lighted key ring from the switch, i noticed a small pin on the side of the keysitch housing, if you put your key inot the switch and try to turn it, this pin moves in and out as the key is turned, ours wouldnt budge, or was stuck. i pressed it a few times with a small screwdriver, and sprayed it with some trusty wd40, and walla. it now works fine. would probably tak you about half hour to fix if you wanted to try what i did, if not then you may need to call a locksmith. i hope this helps, although you may have a different problem than we did.

SOURCE: Key stuck in ignition when in park in 1999 Chrysler Concorde

When the car is in park, push the shifter firmly up past park and keys will come out. This is a very common problem with GM vehicles. The pins wear out easily

SOURCE: Unlock Instructions ignition for Chrysler 300M

This happened with my 2000 Ford Focus. To Unlock the ignition, put the car key in, and hit it gently with a hammer. The ignition tumbler will lock again when you take out the key, so have a hammer handy if you go somewhere :P.It happened to me on November 7th, the tow truck driver came, did this, and started the with no problems.

Turn steering wheel (side to side) vigorously while moving key to position to remove it. It should remove now unless you tried putting key in upside down & it will require pliers to tug and remove.

My 1999 Chrysler circus Will not start and the key is stuck in the ignition checked all fuses they are good


Not knowing all details I'll try a guess because the key is stuck, a possibility going off that, the key cylinder has a white metal extension going into the ign switch that may have broken off preventing the switch to turn far enough to kick starter in,(turn the key dash lights go out and starter doesn't turn over) if this be the case the column would have to be partially disassembled to access.
