06 ram 2500 hemi started shaking and misfiring during acceleration I got codes p2111 and p2101 the shop I took it to said that an injector fried the pcm and took out 5 cylinders at once Does this sound...

not in my book. sounds like a bad egr valve or switch or vacuum leak somewhere. Could be coil or igniton module, check map sensor for vacuum leaks or bad connections. I would change the pcm (high dollar item) last if possible. p2111-p2101 calls for a sticking throttle, so clean your throttel body and remove any carbon buildup if possible, and check throttle position sensor.

Igniton cylinder lock

The shifter control for the transmission is probably worn, so the connection to the electronic control switch is not making contact to be able to release the key,if your shift handle is loose from pushing and pulling, that may be the problem.

Key wont turn on electronics, no radio, windshield wipers, windows, instrument panel lights

Sounds like you need a new ignition switch. It is usually located on the drivers side of the steering colum about 10 inches above the floor. Make sure the key is in the off position before you start to take the switch out.. the connector on the swithch come out just squeezing the clips on the clips on the ends of the connector and pull it out of the swithch. There are 2 screws that hold the switch in place, (Besure to notice the rod that fits into the back of the switch, this rod comes down from the key mechanism) When you put the new swithch on. line the bent rod up with the hole in the back of the switch. Replace the screws, and connector and your ready to try the new swithch out. This should start the truck the way it should, with no accessories while starting. Hope I have been of assistance in curing the problem.

You have a lock cylinder problem, the plate that holds down the tumblers has broken or come off and this is causing the lock cylinder to jam and not be allowed to turn, you will need to take out the cylinder to repair.

Ignition switch does not shut off motor

The connection between the Lock cylinder and the Ignition switch has come apart. There is pin that holds it together where the column tilts to allow for the tilt. The bad thing is the column needs to be completely disassembled to fix it, or replace the column with one from a salvage yard. The pin that falls out is usually still inside the column if you take it apart.

Check to see if the floor on the passanger side is wet. If so, than your A/C drain clogged up and your ECM/computer got flodded by water causing all sorts of funky stuff happening. Right next to the gas pedal is a small cover attached to the computer. It has a clip in it. Remove the clip and tug on the cover. Look at the top of the computer to see if its rusted up. Remove the other side cover also, which is on passanger side floor next to your left foot(if you sitting in passenger seat). and check other side of ECM/computer. Check the ECM for rust on top.
If ALL of that looks OK, than I would replace the switch,(since you are telling me that the key got VERY hot) that is mounted on the back of the ignition cylinder. Its a white round switch that failes after a while especially car beeing 1996, just think about how many times that ignition has been turned ON/OFF since 1996. The mechanism in the switch failes, causing starting issues and funky electrical issues.
Does the car have a remote starter installed?? Or didi it have one in the past?? I have seen companies that install them cause some damage to the harnesses on the switch that is mounted to the back of the igniton cylinder. They use "scotch locks" to connect the remote starter and after a while the connection corrode and cause problems too.
Anyways, check the computer for rust first. Than I would install that switch on back of the igniton. You can buy the switch seperately. You dont need the whole ignition assembly/switch only. Switch is pretty cheap (approx $50 ?). Try that and post results. I would feel pretty good about the switch beeing faulty. I have ssen them fail in the past and that's where your power comes into for the starter circuit.(key getting HOT, switch shorting out, making the key hot and starting the car without the key)
