i rip all stuff off just to see THIS IS NOT A PERMANENT FIX, you only need to take the two screws off the bottom cover of the steering wheel column, then you can see the lock cylinder housing tap casting with hammer and turn key gently at sametime :)

if your Car/Truck Key won't turn, here is a Quick fix -UNCUT
some ppl have asked to send me a donation for helping them out, thanks all that have donated, anything is appreciated: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=QJPVE9 UMV8SE4 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 locked. 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. OR 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.
How to troubleshoot a starting system (bad ignition switch) - Dodge Neon
This case study I did on a body shop vehicle covers a lot of starter circuit theory and operation, as well as practical testing methods, making it great viewing for anyone working in the field. Even though the subject is a Neon, the information I cover will apply to all starting systems and standard relays. I also get to show the power of a simple test light, and how valuable it can be in electrical troubleshooting.
