View Full Version : Keys wont work, stuck in park

01-06-2005, 05:13 PM
Ok First of all my 4 year old son was with his mother and she left him alone in the car with keys. He shoved a dodge ram key in the ignition and now the regular key wont work and its stuck in park. The dodge key came out without any force and the car keys go in and out easily.

Do I need to replace the key and ignition switch or just get codes reset. I am pretty much at the mercy of my local dealer anyway which is 80 miles away.

Appreciate any help.

Move the shifter from N to D a few times... Might dislodge it.. (for now)

THe lock cylinder was bad, only cost a couple hundred dollars to fix. But it sure was a pain in the ass.
