the fix was to remove the housing around the shift gear button as it was not allowing to release the button fully. no cost.

Starting to have this key not able to be turned in the ignition issue with my Intrepid. Today it took multiple tries to get the key to turn in the ignition...thankfully it did! Hope it continues working until I can get it in for service.
key will not turn the ignition, once in awhile it will work if im lucky,but now it does not want to turn at all, how can you get the ignition out if you can't turn it ?
