Before servicing any vehicle, please be sure to read the precautions section, which deals with personal safety, prevention of component damage, and important points to take into consideration when servicing a motor vehicle.
Vehicle must be in PARK prior to ignition cylinder removal.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disable the SIR (air bag) system, as outlined in the Chassis Electrical Section.
Remove the steering column trim covers.
Insert key into the ignition and rotate to the RUN position. Then rotate ignition cylinder back to ACC position.
Depress the locking button through hole on side of ignition module assembly with a thin pick-type tool then slide the lock cylinder from the ignition housing.

If you are installing a new lock cylinder, recoding will be required and a J 41340, Lock Cylinder Holding Fixture and Staking Tool will be required.
Ignition lock cylinder reads key cut position 1 through 9.
Insert the appropriate tumbler (3) according to the key code into the corresponding tumbler ward.

Fig. Insert the appropriate tumbler according to the key code into the corresponding tumbler ward
The tumblers will not immediately seat into position because the sidebar has been pre-assembled. The tumblers will have to be pushed past the sidebar with a small flat screwdriver or pocket knife.
The tumbler springs (2) should then be inserted into the spring wells in the cylinder (4) where they will sit on top of the tumblers.
The seal plate (1) will be installed and crimped.
Insert the seal plate locator legs into the receptacle slots in the cylinder--seal plate will seat into position only when the two locator legs have been properly inserted into the receptacles on the cylinder.
While holding the seal plate in position with the thumb, insert the key into the cylinder and watch for the side bar to drop. If the side bar does not drop, the lock is tumbled wrong and you need to start over.
Ensure that the side bar does not drop on an angle. The side bar must be completely flush to the cylinder diameter.
Stake (1) the two metal areas of the cylinder (2) directly over the seal plate legs with a hammer and punch or chisel.
Fig. Stake (1) the two metal areas of the cylinder (2) directly over the seal plate legs with a hammer and punch or chisel.
Repeat this stake on the areas of the cylinder directly opposite of the first to stakes.
Actuator blade within the ignition module must be in ACC position to install the lock cylinder assembly. If rotated, reposition the actuator blade to the ACC position using needle nose pliers.
Insert key into ignition lock cylinder and install the cylinder into the lock housing.
Rotate the lock cylinder in the housing. Verify proper rotation.
The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.
If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.
If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.
Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.
If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.
Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side seat.
Disable the airbag system, as outlined in the Chassis Electrical Section.
Remove the hush and knee bolster.
Remove the steering column trim covers.
With the key installed, turn the key to the RUN position.

To set the stations you just tune in to the station and hold the preset number button until it locks in. The numbers on the seat bottoms are presets for the seats. Put the seat into what ever position, you should also have a round green button, push that then push a number. Change the seat position and when you hit that number/hold the button it should go back to that position. ESP is traction control on the vehicle, it allows to disable it for snow at low speeds when wheel rotation is needed when known slippage will most likely occur.
The "SPRING-BACK" Action is Originated in the Ignition Switch itself (THE ELECTRICAL SWITCH) I think that is where you should Look.
On these models, the ignition lock and ignition switch are removed as an assembly. Refer to IGNITION LOCK . Disable airbag, refer to Air Bags and Seat Belts/Air Bags (Supplemental Restraint Systems)/Service and Repair . After procedure has been completed, rearm airbag system.

following procedure applies to vehicles that have functional lock
cylinders. Such cylinders either have a key available or known key
numbers from which a key can be made.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Turn the lock cylinder key to the RUN position.
Using a 1/8
in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or a small drift, depress the lock cylinder
retaining pin through the access hole in the upper steering column
shroud (under the ignition lock cylinder) while pulling out on the lock
cylinder. Remove the lock cylinder from the column.
Using the key, turn the ignition lock cylinder to the RUN position,
then depress the retaining pin using a wire pin or small drift
Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN
position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder
into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in
the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder housing.
Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
Connect the negative battery cable.
following procedure applies to vehicles in which the ignition lock is
inoperative and the lock cylinder cannot be rotated due to a lost or
broken key, unknown key number or a lock cylinder cap that has been
damaged and/or broken to the extent that the lock cylinder cannot be
Thats a whole different ballpark. The center seat consoles do not lock upright at all there is no locking device, you just lift it up and it has a small bump that the lever hops over and this keeps it from falling back down. The only thing I can think of is something could be wedged in the lever or the rotating level itself is broken and holding the seat up. You may be able to see what is holding it if you move the drivers seat as far forward as possible and watch carefully on one side while wiggling the console back and forth and then do the same on the other side. If could be the lever bent and you may be able to bent it back into plce where it should be.
Let me know what you find, in the mean time I will check the Chrysler Star Hotline to see if there was a simular problem.
The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.
