help with ignition issue Sign In

I have a 2000 intrigue that the key would intermittently not work. Than last week wouldn't turn at all. I replaced the ignition and the key turned once. It didn't start it just clicked. Than the key wouldn't turn again. I got another ignition and the same thing happened. Is there some security issue I have to reset or something?.
Thanks for the help,
Rick

It's probably the electrical switch itself of the linkage jamming.

Did you replace the ignition switch or the lock cylinder?

That's not what we are asking. Did you change the part with the large electrical plug?

Take it off and see if it works normal off the truck. I can't see anything that could jam the whole setup if both components were replaced.

Re: help with ignition issue Sign In

Any ideas what might be causing this? I replaced the while thing twice and both times it locked up after installing it. The key turned in both new parts before I hooked then up now both are locked even when I disconnect them

Re: help with ignition issue Sign In

Not having the right tumblers would def cause this. Did you code the lock cylinder?

Re: help with ignition issue Sign In

No. Don't even know what that means. Out came south a key that worked before I installed it. How do I get it to work now?
Thanks

Re: help with ignition issue Sign In

Is this something I can do myself or will this take a locksmith our dealer?

Re: help with ignition issue Sign In

I haven't pulled up the specs on this particular system but I would be making sure there wasn't a problem with the shifter......When the key is locking,,,,Jiggle the shifter towards park & see if that does anything for you...

Like most vehicles if the shifter is anywhere but park, you won't be able to remove the key.....
