Ignition locked on a 2000 Dodge intrepid


If you any other spare key, try with that key and see if it turns the ignition to unlock position.Try to turn the steering wheel to left and key to right side and try turning key to left an steering wheel to right side, try both ways and see if the key unlocks ignition.If that is not helping then try to wiggle the steering wheel and then insert key to unlock ignition.If that is also not helping then get wd-40 spray and spray the lubricant into key hole, and then let the spray remain there for few minutes then insert key in the key hole and see if it unlocks the ignition.------ If not then its problem with tumblers in the ignition switch, it has to be checked.For that ignition switch has to be removed and inspected.If ignition switch is inspected ok, then ignition key lock cylinder is faulty, it has to be replaced.Once the ignition switch is removed, the key lock cylinder can be accessed.----------- Getting this troubleshooting tried and this possibilities checked will help, thanks.Helpmech.

2000 dodge caravan key will not turn can not start car steering wheel is locked


The tumblers in the lock cylinder are stuck and this prevents the key from turning. Spray some lubricant into the cylinder, insert the key in and out numerous times and also hit the end of the key with a rubber hammer while it is in the cylinder and this will help to release the tumblers.
