if your Car/Truck Key won't turn, here is a Quick fix -UNCUT
If your key won't turn or is stuck, no matter how much you wiggle it, turn
the steering wheel, or press the brake, then you might want to try this.
But use as a last resort, at your own risk.
This is pretty common in Jeeps, at first my key wont turn in the ignition,
but if I wiggling it a little it will eventually work. I have been doing
this for over a year now. Until today, no matter how much I wiggle the key,
turn the steering wheel, press the brake, it will not turn. I'm totally
So I did some research and found out that it is the lock cylinder that has
gone bad and I need to have a local locksmith replace it at a cost of about
$120 in parts and $50 in labor. Another option is to tow it to a Jeep
dealer and pay over $900 for a entire steering column.
You can just take a hammer or rubber mallet and hit the end of the key,
this will bent the copper latch piece allowing you to start your jeep.

Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your
vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start"
and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch

Dodge neon wont start
Wondering what is causing my 2000 dodge neon not to start. It gives a click
then acts as though it will start but no go! Not even a rev. I've changed
the camshaft position sensor (CPS) by suggestion of the clerk at o'riellys
auto parts. It also was having trouble shifting so I guess I see why he
suggested it. Now I just have the issue of not starting in the first place.
It's very intermittent and will start on occasion a few times in a row then
starts over with the same no crank no start scenario. Ive taken the starter
out and had it checked at autozone and it passed. A few times. I brushed
off the terminal bolt and made sure everything was tip top with the battery
terminals. Any ideas would be helpful!!
Oh! And hen I did the key dance the OBD codes I got were p1684 and p1685.
The first one is disconnected battery removing the starter and replacing
the CPS) the second came up as SKIM key incorrect. I still don't get i

Chrysler Gen III Minivan Ignition Switch Replacement
This wasn't the solution to my problem, but if you think you need to change
your ignition switch, this video shows you how. Notice at the end there are
some still photos showing the dash panels in various degrees of removal.
Refer to them if you think it will help give you access to the switch. I
had removed the panels on my minivan to get to the instrument cluster. Use
