HAVE YOU TRIED ANOTHER KEY? REMOVE THE KEY, SPRAY LOCK LUBRICANT IN THE LOCK
PUT THE KEY ALL THE WAY IN THE LOCK, TAP THE KEY IN A LITTLE FARTHER, HOLD FOOTBRAKE DOWN, WIGGLE THE STEERING WHEEL. IT MAY HELP THE JIGGLE THE GEARSHIFT.

Often times when I turn the wheel all the way weather left or right. and weather in forward or in reverse doesn't matter the truck kills. its a 2001 dodge dakota automatic.


on most power steering pumps there is a single wire idle up switch to compensate for load caused by pump switch is on pump check connection also try to find a clear parking lot drive in slow circle steer all the way see if engine dies while moving at slow speed will use less effort if engine doesnt die then check the p/s idle up switch

Try wiggling the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering wheel lock can stop the key from turning if there is pressure on it.

I'm assuming this truck has Power Steering. (my 2000 Dodge Dakota does) Because the power steering pump is causing a strain on the engine when you turn the steering wheel and it is also being strained by putting the truck in 4 wheel drive, A simple tune up might be in order. By tune up I mean spark plugs, spark plug wires, air cleaner, Distributor cap and rotor button. I would also check the timing on the engine and if possible change the fuel filter (The fuel filter is a real bear on this truck because it is in the fuel tank along with the fuel pump and sending unit)
