Question about 2005 Dodge Durango
Programming won't effect if it turns or not.
The most common problem is when there is feedback pressure from the tire against a curb, up hill, etc., and that causes the steering lock to bind the key cylinder. The solution for that is to try pushing both ways on the steering wheel, as you try to turn the key, to relieve the pressure.
The second most common is wear on the key, so it helps to jiggle the key side to side, up and down, etc. as you try to turn it.
Try turning the key upside down, using the spare, etc.
As an act of desperation, you could try putting the key in, and gently tapping on it with a piece of wood or the handle of a hammer. They are beginning to make ignition locks with tumblers spring operated, at right angles to the key, and they are very easily bound up by friction, because the springs are so small and weak. This was a very common problem with the Ford Focus, and I believe Dodge picked up the same bad design.
