I have a 06 rt, and I am having ignition problems. Key won't turn but I can start it by pulling the ignition switch and turning it with a screwdriver. Had the lock cylinder cleaned but still won't turn. I want to put it on a trailer and bring it to a mechanic but the steering is locked and the wheels are turned to the left. I disconnected the driveshaft and the back wheels will turn but not the front. Any help on how i can get it on the trailer or make the key turn would be greatly appreciated. Just don't know what to do. Thanks.
There is a little plastic cover on the column behind the steering wheel. It has a small slot on its edge. Use yur key to pop the cover and then insert your key into the hole you see. That should unlock the column lock and allow the shifter to move. You should be able to turn the wheel also and if in neutral, the parking pawl will not be engaged.
