1997 Ford Ranger 2.3L Hard Start

I love my Rangers, and it sounds like you need a new starter drive, better know as the bendix. It is cheaper to buy a new starter. As far as the door locks, I would get the starter fixed first and the door lock problem may go away. sounds like the starter is dragging the power down and could cause a number of strange thing to happen. Hope I have help you solve your problem. I think It will.

Turn key many times before starter works 1997 galant

I pulled out the ignition switch and found that it was not turning quite far enough. I put some gaffer tape across the slot that turns in the switch, then pushed it back in to create a snug fit. When you pull it out you'll see what I mean. So far so good.

My daughter has a 1997 Nissan Altima and the key is stuck in the ignition. The car will start up and run just fine, she just can't get the key out. I guess the ignition won't turn back far enough. Thanks

it sounds like the shift lock thinks the car is still in gear check the shift lock solenoid a make sure it's working properly and you may be able to move it to where itis reading that the car is in park if it does try turning the key on off and removing it if it works replace the solenoid

Sometimes will not shift out of Park

I have the same issue. As far as I can tell it's probably the ignition switch and or/ ignition lock assembly. Parts only you can find the switch for $65. If you replace the ignition lock assembly you should have it ordered for your car by VIN # to get a matching key.

Key Stuck

It is a one time thing if you parked the front tires against something that forced the steering sector in a turning bind. ie, if you had tried to turn the steering wheel hard in the direction that the wheels were pointed, it may have released the tension on the key assembly....
Otherwise, it may occur again., good luck

Have you tried turning the key in the ignition with the chip in it? Some cars work if you turn the key on and off a number of times, say 5-6 times, and most cars with auto locks will lock & unlock when things have been reset to let you know.
