1998 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 250000 miles
All of a sudden, the key wouldn't turn the ignition switch. No matter how I twisted the key, wiggled it. Etc. I shot some WD40 into the switch thinking steel dust would have jambed some of the tumblers. That didn't do it.
I had to get aggressive. Removed the plastic from around the head of the switch coller, attached the vise grip, and cracked the ignition past home position.
I'm now able to just turn the ignition, only as expected, the tumblers are causing enough friction.
I want to know how to replace the ignition. Can you help?
