#1530 of 1538 Upgrade on Ignition Problem
Aug 27, 2010 (10:59 am)
So many of us are having a problem with the steering wheel locking when trying to start with ignition key that someone must have come up with a permanent fix. I fiddle around for what seems like an internaty and it will finally re lease. If I ever wanted to sell this car, as beautiful as it is, no one would buy it. My wife won't drive it.

I too have had this same issue and at times started to panic due to the length of time it took me to get it un-locked. I also called the dealership and did the same steps as Cheryl mentioned above. Also I have noticed that when you park your car to make sure the wheels are straight and the steering wheel is completely straight as well this has help a lot. If you find out a permanent fix, please posted it as I would love to know as well.

It cost me $1,000.00 at Chrystler to have my "sticky" ignition fixed...I hope they soon turn this problem into a recall!

Thank you soooo much.
I just called the 800 number. My window fell in over a year ago with only 25,000. mi. on the car.
The dealership stated that the only way to remedy the situation would be for me to replace the entire convertible top, which would have cost me aprox. $3,000.00. That was not financially possible for me at the time so I had a foreign shop cut a piece of plastic and sew it into the window space where my glass window was origionally.
They are calling it an.... X31 extended warranty. I will be making my appointmment at the dealership shortly.
Thank you again,

I love my car and bought it at a good price but the top has been a problem since about 3 weeks after buying it. An extended warranty has been issued for 10 yrs or 100,000 miles.
I would have a mechanic check it over and if the price is right, go for it!!
Plz let me know what you decide..

I love my car. I would definitely buy the Crossfire. There's not a day that goes by that I am not happy to drive it and I have had zero issues with the car, (knock on wood) I wish you luck! What color?

I purchased my Limited new in 05. Love it even with its "sticky ignition" problem and with its back window falling in. Ironic, I am going to be dropping the car off this evening at Arrigo in WPB to have the new roof replaced...which is now covered under the extended warranty. I did have it replaced myself a few years back with a plastic window...The glass window just pulled away from the fabric. I am not sure if they plan on replacing it with the original glass window or with a plastic sewn in style. I am curious as to what your purchase cost will be. Mine has depreciated drastically. Feel free to e-mail me if you do not care to post the price. Best wishes with the car...I have loved mine.
