Good Morning Thomas:
Sounds like an ignition switch problem. Your key has a chip in it or is supposed to, and your ignition switch has a sensor in it that can recognize the chip. If you do not get a match the theft light will stay on. Not bing able to turn the ignitions switch all the way off sounds like the shifting linkage my be out of alignment or the car is no in park. Some times I try to turn off my engine while I am still in reverse. Usually placing the car in park solves this problem (sorry, I am sure you checked that, but just saying). If you have a spare key with the chip you know like your wife's set try that key and if the problem continues I would spend the money and have the dealer look at it. On the other hand changing out the ignition switch is not that hare if you have the correct key and a punch pin ( a paper clip might work but I be leave in buying the correct tools). With the car in park and the engine off you turn the switch to the run position without engaging the starter then push in that pin and the ignition will come right out. There is probably a plug on it for the sensor. You can then replace it with a new matching ignition and key. But remember the new key will not fit your door.
Best of luck
'RR

I just had this same problem with a '96 . do you have a vats key in your '94? you need to bypass the VATS system. read some of the blogs on this site and it will tell you how to do it. I fixed mine with a $2 resistor from radio shack.

SOURCE: 1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: anti theft dash light is blinking on my 1998 rodeo

I'm assuming its an original alarm or system that came from factory or dealer. When the light blinks is because the alarm is activated. Look underneath the radio the alarm brain might be there. There will be a label on it saying alarm or security system etc. Disconnect the harness to it and try operating your vehicle.

Chrysler Crossfire 2006 immobilizer?


You can't , and rather then just thinking it's the immobilizer you need to know for sure ! Is there any light's lit on the dash flashing when you try to start the vehicle ,or a light - Security , a key an lock symbol ? If not I wouldn't think it's a anti-theft system problem ! Before you start replacing parts needlessly an chopping into wiring harness , I suggest you have it taken to a ASE certified repair facility !

Driver side door ajar light comes on 2006 chryler 300 c


alarm will obviously sound because the anti theft device thinks door is open...maybe it doesn't think ...it mis detects
check the door light switch and how it is affected by closing opening of door. look at what happens at the contact point.
It may be something mechanical, or something electronic/electrical
empirical testing should reveal the answer

On my 2006 Chrysler 300, the brake light, check engine light and other minor dash lights are on and the transmission won't shift out of 1st gear. Any idea what's going on?


If a car goes into limp mode, its likely something spectacular has gone wrong and the car is protecting itself from major damage. You will probably have to go to a Chrysler Dealer to rectify and get them to clear the fault off the cars computer.

2005 Chrysler 300 wont start, clicking coming from rear fuse box. Check all fuses, all ok. Not sure what the problem is red light on the dash is on. Please help


The security system has been activated. It's not able toread the chip in the key. That's y it only let it start 3 times. After that it locks up,put a battery charger on car and turn key on and leave on for 45 min,this will unlock anti theft module. Preferably use a spare key

My 2006 dodge stratus wont start


If the engine will not crank over with the starter then have the battery and starter tested first and then go from there. If the theft system is the problem you will have a warning light on in the dash or a message on alerting you to the problem in the anti theft system.

Lights completley shut off and on even while driving chrysler 300


you need to replace the relay for the headlights located in the fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery. the headlights you see when you shut off the others are likely your day time running lights

RESETTING CHECK ENGINE LIGHT


I can only assume you have had the code extracted and fixed the problem and looking to do a reset only. If you have not fixed the problem the reset wont do any good. That being said, in most all chrysler vehicles, the check engine light can be reset by disconnecting the negative battery cable for at least 15 seconds. However on OBD II (usually 97 and newer) models the light can only be reset with the use of a scan tool. CAUTION : If the stereo in your vehicle is equipped with an anti-theft system, make sure you have the correct activation code before disconnecting the battery cable.
