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
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
