Take it to Chrysler for an ignition switch replacement. They replaced mine and both keys as I had the exact same problem. It is a known issue to them. Also, the replacement was covered under warranty.

    I am having the same problem in my 2008 Charger. The dealer is telling me that they do not stock the ignition because Chrysler will not let them and it will take the dealer a month to get it from them. Now my question is why should I have to pay for a car that Chrysler knows they have a problem with and it will take me a month to get the ignition from them!!!

By now, you have probably figured out it is the battery.

Does the engine crank at all? Can you hear the clicking of the starter solenoid? Have you checked your battery?

If the battery is fine and the engine won't crank and your dash lights and windows are dead, I'm guessing ignition switch.

97 dodge neon turn key have lights but no crank or no noises

Is the car still in gear? If it is, then it will not start till you put the car in park. I've done this before and the same thing happened, had radio, lights etc...till I put car in gear and it started. Check the gear selector, if it's not in park, then put it in park and try to start. Hope that helps.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens

If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

The 2008 Dodge charger will not start, no radio,no fan. Fuses ok.

I had the same problem last night seems like the ignition is a problem with those cars i called a towing and while i was waiting i kept on trying to start and suddenly it started just as the towing showed up seems like the key is very fragile even just rubbing it on your clothes or even run it tru your hair can **** it up so the car won t recognize the code see your dealer
