    Most ignition locks require putting in the ignition key turning it to the accessory position and depressing a detent that would then allow the key/tumbler assembly to be withdrawn from the mechanical ignition lock. Without the key the lock has to be "forced" or the column modified to get the tumbler assembly out. Usually a locksmith can be pretty helpful call a couple of locksmiths or some independent auto repair shops in your area, nothing to complicated about a 93 Dodge. Instructions to remove the lock. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
