I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 when I went outside to warm it up this morning it was 15 degrees and my ignition was stuck and would not move what should I do
Are the wheels cut to the left or right?
Sounds like your key cylinder is bad not letting the key turn.Does the key turn at all when you put it in the switch and you do have the right key?
yeah i have the right key but it wont turn at all. i was hoping it was just the weather since it all happened with no warning at all
Sometimes if you take some wd40 and spray in it and keep trying to turn it forwards and back it will let you start it.Once you get it started don't turn the key back to where you can pull the key out because it has to be on to change out. If not you have to bust them out with a slide hammer to change it.
that was the first thing i tried but it didnt work either smh
The only other thing is try putting a heater inside and warm it up in case it is frozen. If this doesn't work it's time for the slide hammer and new key switch.
