Ignition Switch Problem?

I have an '06 Dodge Charger (SXT), and when I go to put my key in the ignition, if I turn it all the way to crank (on) as SOON as I put it in, nothing happens at all (like my electronics don't even cut on, nor does it start to crank), I have to turn the key back to off and do it again and it works (starts to crank), am I just doing it so fast it is slipping out of the key grip in the ignition or do I have a faulty ignition/key grip or what? It does this quite a bit but if I put it in the ignition then wait a millisecond and not turn the key quite so fast it cranks fine, am i just doing it too fast? It does this on occasion, quite a few times, but mostly only when I do it fast, doesn't affect anything else really, just bothersome. Any ideas? My problem or the cars? Again, everything else works fine and it doesn't affect anything.

Sometimes when I'm in Knieval mode, I have a similar issue. The car starts to crank, but it does not turn over. It only happens when I am a little fast. You may just need to cool it down on the startup

The PCM runs a few checks before it will allow you to start. If you try to start it to fast, it will just sit there and do nothing.

The V-6 seems to be a bit more effected by it. I believe there is TSB out for the condition.

Read the stated symptoms/conditions in the TSB and see it they match your problem. Remember, a code does not have to be present.

Like crow said it takes a second for the skeem system to read the key before it will allow you to start. Otherwise it doesnt see the chip/resistance in the key and it thinks your stealing your car. welcome to microsoft sxt

When you see a red puddle under your car. Or, next time you do an oil change look at the underside of the tranny, if its dry, your OK. Just keep an eye on it at every oil change.
