.You need to disassemble the inside door panel. It is held to the door with a couple of screws and several clips on the back side of the panel. The lock is attached to the door with a horseshoe type clip that will slide away from the lock cylinder from inside the door.There will be a rod attached to the cylinder with a metal clip that you will also have to disconnect. It may be easier/cheaper to change the ignition cylinder and have new keys ( supplied with cylinder ) than go to lock smith

2000 Trooper LS. Why won't the ignition key unlock any of the doors? (the metal key part)

  • Some of the locks have been probably changed before.

  • Or you need to get original keys for truck, copies just get worn out by use.

How to take ignition switch out without key?

It can be done but you will need to drill out the locking tab that holds the lock cylinder into the housing. This is not an easy process and you could mess up the steering column if you don't do it correctly. Your best bet is to call a lock smith or bring proof of ownership to your local dodge dealer and have them make you a key.

take it to a lock smith to remove the broken part or you could jam the broken part down to where the ignition will turn with the broken key. I advise taking it to a lock smith to remove the broken part
