SOURCE: Key won't turn in ignition and the wheel is locked up

Maybe you need to find the right key 'cause this one could be the wrong one, or, worn out. Wiggle the wheel more. I know you wiggled it in the vid. Wiggle the key in and out. Try the second copy of the key.

I have a 96 Dodge Ram 5.2. I replaced the ignition switch and cylinder. After replacing the vehicle starts but won't turn to auxiliary,the key won't come out and the truck won't go into gear.


When you remove the lock cylinder, the ignition switch needs to be in the run position, and you need to put the new cylinder in the run position before installing it. It may be possible to get the cylinder into the switch housing in a different position, which may be what happened with yours. See the YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN88TceP12c
