followed all the steps but the key will not turn to the run position
Ignition cylinder lock on 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
You try replacing the ignition switch inside the steering column? I know that's separate from the cylinder. I don't think it cost much more than $30 from autozone for it. There's probably some linkage in there hanging up.
I don't know what steps you followed. But, sometimes if you try wiggling the steeriing column it will free the locked column. to better explain----- 1) key in ignition 2) wiggle steering column and try unlocking the ignition. Most times works. If you have a problem at that point I would suggust seeing a friend that is a mechanic and have him troubleshoot it for you.
