Could be a couple of things.
When you try to turn your key try releasing the pressure on the column by moving the steering wheel left or right. It should move a little and may be causinf enough pressure to prevent the key from turning.

Take your husband's key and have a duplicate made from it.

Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.


Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

It's likely one of the door switches is damaged causing the door open signal. It can also be caused by the key in the ignition, so don't rule out a faulty key insertion switch.

Have your husband or a mechanic test these parts for accurate functionality.

My alarm goes of intermitantly do i need anew door


I just did this to my 02' last night.

Put key in ignition and turn to run. Open and close each door, make sure the interior lights and dinger go off each door. If one doesn't that is the door to focus on and do this......

Open door.

With a screwdriver trip the latch on the door 2 clicks, you'll see

In the void just below the latch finger get a can of Brakecleen and firehose the hell out of it. As fast as it evaporates I still had it running out of the door drain.

Pull the handle to re-set the latch and open and close the door several times to work the switch. Might have to do it several dozen times.

Repeat as necessary.

Finish up by giving it a blast of PB Blaster, WD 40, or some light lubricant.

Repeat for the other doors.

If this didn't do the trick, give it a few days to maybe work itself free, ohterwise you may have to replace the $170 lock assembly.

Nothing works and can't remove key from ignition


If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not come out of the ignition cylinder. Don't force the ignition key to ensure you do not damage the pass lock system in your ignition. Jump the battery or replace it to get enough voltage to remove the key's from the ignition and check the fuse box for any blown fuses. Good luck and keep me posted.
