Message:
Quick question, went to start my 1991 Dodge Dakota yesterday and when put the key in, flipped the switch down, something broke! I have power when I flip it up to reserve, but when I flip it down to engauge the starter it just flops loose, the springy feel you get when you engauge and release the starter is gone (it will not kick the starter on). Is it the ignition switch or the ignition cylinder where your key goes in, or something else? Luckily mine is a stick and push started it and got it home, parked on a slope so when I take it to the in-laws garage tonight, I'm tearing in. Any thoughts are appreciated!!

I had the same problem on a 93, it was the key lock cylinder. Easy to check if you have access to a service manual. If you don't, e-mail me.

Yes it was the key lock cylinder!! It was broke off inside, $15 part at the ole Autozone and I'm back in business. The Haynes manual did a good job of walking me through the removal and installation process.
