Question about 2004 Chrysler Crossfire
My key and spare won't turn in ignition, only after quite a few tries and tapping on the key as I am attempting to turn it.
key wont turn on easily. After trying for a couple minutes sometimes I can get it to turn on by wiggling the wheel and really turning the key hard. You can hear a snap and I'm afraid I'll break my key off sometime. Does my lock cylinder need to be replaced? Only have 30k miles on my 2004 crossfire
The lock cylinder in the steering column has to be changed. I have see these wear out.
To avoid having a new key combination for the ignition, when you go to the dealer and order new part, tell them that you want to have it in the same combination code as the original. You will have to loan them a copy of the key to have this done.
The last step is you will need someone who knows how to change the cylinder in the steering column. In many models of cars, this is an involved job.

I also have a 2004 crossfire. If you don't know this already the crossfire keying in the ingition is awkward. Put the key in slightly and twist it completely to the left then push it into the ignition and turn it all the way to the right to turn it on. It took me a long time to get use to it but apparently this is how most if not all crossfires are designed to be turned over. Hope this helps.
