Electrical problem
2001 Dodge Dakota V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

The truck will start with no problems and idle just fine. What is going on is if you want to listen to the radio or operate the turn signals you have to turn the key, in the cylinder lock almost all the way to the start position. I have replaced the cylinder lock and this did not fix the problem
Do you
