1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: need to replace the ignition key cylinder
Answer #1pushrod January 17, 2014, 01:35Master
If the key and lock cylinder turns like it should then you have another problem. Dead battery, poor connection or ignition (electrical) switch maybe. Also it is a possible starter problem. Any lights on dash light up with key on? Horn blow, headlights work?

no the dash lights do not come on and the steering wheel remains locked and headlights work

Possible ignition switch. Those have an ignition box with gears in it, if that's bad it will not turn the switch.
