This is a common failure... if you google it, you'll find out you're not alone. There is a weak link in the shifter of your car (mine is the same). It's a cheesy plastic arm that wears out. Dodge's answer is to replace the entire shifter assembly, but no need! There is someone out there with our answer. For 49.99 you can purchase a billet steel machined replacement. I just bought mine and also, at is detailed replacement instructions complete with photos! With medium level mechanical skills you should be able to pull this off.
Our shifter is starting to act up, I researched this and bought the parts so I'll be able to change it out before it completely fails... in the mean time, I'm being easy on it....
Good luck on the swap out...

2005 dodge magnum rt. a/c gauges not working an i cant tell how much ac im putting in because the high pressure side is not moving from 50psi. but if i turn car off it goes up

If both sides are reading the same, the compressor is not working, or you have the gauges hooked up to the same side somehow.
The system should read what the outside air temp is until the compressor starts running.

05' magnum keys stuck in ignition

It is possible that your problem is with the shift lock actuator. Charge the battery up. For safety sake charge the battery outside the car. If your ignition is on you don't want to hook up jumper cables. If you do it wrong you can spike the computer. Once you have a strong battery put your trans down in to low and then firmly back into park. The shift lock mechanism is meant to keep you from starting the car without putting your foot on the brake, but if it fails it can be engaged and not let you go back into park. Use a test light to check all your fuses if it still will not work. If that does not do it, start it in neutral and take it to the garage.

Hope that helps.
