Dodge Neon Repair Question
Dodge Neon Ignition key
Well I thought it must be the mechanical tumblers, but when I removed the whole cylinder, it feels like you can easily turn it, at least to a point, then it stops dead. Well looking to the rim behind where there is a cam that 2 spring loaded pins push on the cam, it look like the key cannot turn all the way to where the marks go, but I don't know if there is something else that needs to happen to unlock it to go further.
My question is, how do I know if it is the tumbler, or the electrical part of the switch that is faulty?
It was the ignition key switch that was sticky.
I sprayed some WD-40 into the ignition key hole at some point, and that appeared to have caused the problem, for this also makes dirt get accumulated/stuck in the switch.
So I rinsed it out with alcohol, and then let it dry, then got some key lubricant(graphite from Lowe's), and that solved the stickiness. Still going strong
