It would be infinitely better to repair or replace the broken lock or stick with the screwdriver.

Fitting a universal switch intended for ancient cars or mowing machines isn't advisable and probably hardly possible without making some large compromises. It would be a good idea to study a wiring diagram to help ensure you make the best compromises.

You can not disable this system. The powertrain control module (PCM) programmed look for the Transponder Key (your ignition key has micro chip code). You will have replace your ignition switch and get new key reflashed by a dealer or locksmith

2005 grand caravan. running fine. stopped at gas station and filled up. turned the key and won't start. all lights work. bell dings when keys are put in ignition.blowers work. everything runs but won't...


Try cleaning your battery terminals with a wire brush or sandpaper. You will need the proper wrench for this precedure. Retighten & start. If this fails, try taping the starter with a screwdriver. Sometimes this will free up a sticking starter selinoid. If this fails you may need a new starter. Hope this helps. Good luck!

What is the procedure to replace the ignition switch on a 2000 dodge caravan?


The top and bottom plastic steering column covers need to be removed with a Torx screwdriver. The tilt lever, if it exists, must be unscrewed to remove them. Then, remove the tamper-proof Torx screws to remove the entire plastic ignition switch assembly, including key cylinder. The metal cylinder part can now be removed from the ignition switch. If you need to remove the internal keyed part from the cylinder, the key must be in a specific position, and a hammer must be used at a specific spot. Most locksmiths have access to this specific procedure, and/or will do it for $10 or so. Otherwise you can simply replace the cylinder, but that means the key will be different than the doors.

How do you replace the ignition cylinder on a 1998 grand cherokee


Try these steps...

Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing or unclipping them.
Step 2 Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft.
Step3 Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheel and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column.
Step4 Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out.
Step5 Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder.
Step 6 Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

Thanks
Smith

REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY 99 GRAND CARAVAN


INSTALLATION: REMOVE THE TOP DASH COVER USING A FLAT TIP SCREW DRIVER AND LOCATE THE CONNECTOR FOR THE RKE MODULE. THE CONNECTOR WILL BE SMALL AND LOCATED NEXT TO THE HVAC DISTRIBUTION DUCT. MOUNT MODULE AND INSERT THE CONNECTOR. SINCE THE BODY CONTROL MODULE IS INVOLVED WITH THE RKE THIS MAY OR MAY NOT WORK BECAUSE NOT ALL CONTROLLERS ARE THE SAME BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY TO PERFORM THE TASK TRY THIS. FOR PROGRAMMING:
  1. Using a functional key fob transmitter, unlock the vehicle and disarm the Vehicle Theft Security System.
  2. Insert ignition key into the ignition switch.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to RUN position without starting engine.
  4. Using a functional key fob transmitter, press and hold the UNLOCK button for a minimum four seconds (maximum ten seconds)
  5. While holding UNLOCK button, and before ten seconds passes, press and release the PANIC button. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module is set to receive the new Vehicle Access Code(s)
  6. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" buttons on the transmitter at the same time. Then press any one of the buttons. The BCM will sound an abbreviated chime to acknowledge that the programming of the transmitter has been completed and was successful.
  7. Repeat step 6 for all transmitters that will be used with this vehicle (up to 4 total)
  8. Programming mode will last for 30 seconds. To get out of programming mode sooner, turn the ignition OFF. A single chime will sound to verify that the RKE module will no longer accept additional Vehicle Access Code(s)
  9. When Vehicle Access Code(s) programming is complete, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and verify RKE system operation using each key fob
