You might try turning your steering wheel back and forth and maybe changing your tilt while trying to turn the key. It sounds like your steering wheel lock is stuck which is common. Sometimes it just takes playing with it to get it to turn. Another problem that causes this is the gear selector not being in the right spot causing it not to let the ignition turn. Hope this helps and good luck!

2000 chrysler 300m-ignition will not turn


It sounds like the ignition tumbler and/ or switch needs to be replaced. To avoid all the testing and such, replace both at the same time, since they get the same ware. Otherwise, take it to a good locksmith and let them see if it needs a good lub-ing and some cleaning.You know, ear wax and all that stuff people use keys for! A locksmith might cost you around 75 to 100 bucks per hour/ solution in the mid west. BTW- NEVER keep a lot of keys on your key ring. It's been known to be the cause of MANY ignition switch issues.Instead use a ring that un-clips or breaks away from your big wad of keys.

Unlock Instructions ignition for Chrysler 300M


This happened with my 2000 Ford Focus. To Unlock the ignition, put the car key in, and hit it gently with a hammer. The ignition tumbler will lock again when you take out the key, so have a hammer handy if you go somewhere :P.It happened to me on November 7th, the tow truck driver came, did this, and started the with no problems.

Ignition locks up!


Try spraying a little lubricant in there, if you haven't tried already, like silicone spray. Make sure you push hard into park & press brake pedal harder as well, and wiggle steering wheel hard.
