Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My key fob will not stay in ignition, but will start and shut car off. I can drive it
without the fob in the ignition

1 Answer


time for a new ignition switch- on American cars, those used to last for decades- now, well, let's just say they don't make them like they used to- that poor Chrysler product will start melting into the ground, and I don't think you can afford the high price of keeping it intact-
