Durango can't turn ignition


First thing make sure it isnt just the steering wheel lock, move the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key. I that doesnt work it is most likely the key and tumbler. Over time it is normal to experience wear. The solution is to replace the key and tumbler in the steering column.

Do i have to remove the steering wheel to change the ignition switch on a 2002 cavalier


Ignition switch located half way down steering column.
Ignition tumbler (Where you insert the key) Need to remove steering wheel, if tilt steering need remove c clip, then there is a hex bolt securing the tumbler.
Ignition switch is a bit more involved.
hope this helps, James Booth

Key stuck in ignition -- cannot turn on or off. Can an ignition switch cause the tumbler to lock up? Or does the ignition tumbler need to be replaced? If the ignition tumbler needs to be replaced, how...


lets start simple.get a can of silacone spray oil and spray into the switch and keep moving key and you will find this will reliese the key,if you need to remove the ign switch dont panic as its a simple enough job.Forget about steering wheel and whatever,simply remove the outer plastic cover then this exposes the switch at the back of switch is a plug with wires pull it away ,then below the key you should see a tiny screw undo, and make sure the steering lock is not under pressure,ie steering wheel free,when trying to remove switch move steering wheel back/forward and switch should pull out.good luck.adrian,,,,

How do you remove the ignition switch on a ford 250 1994 model?


Do you mean the key and tumbler, or the switch down on the bottom of the steering column? If you mean the switch, just lower your steering column by removing the cover at the bottom of the dash, and then remove the 2 bolts on either side of the column. The switch is near the base of the column, and the rod that runs from the ignition switch goes into it.
If you mean the key and tumbler, you have to pull the steering wheel, remove the screws from the signal cam, and then remove the locking bolt that holds the tumbler. You will need a steering wheel puller to remove the snap ring, and to reinstall.

I bought a 76 k5 blazer but there is no key for it how do u change the locking cylinder or what every you call it


You have to pull the steering wheel and components. Once you get down to the signal light cam, you take the screws out of it, lift it up and you will see the bolt that holds the tumbler in. Remove it, and your key and tumbler will come out. You will need a steering wheel puller.
