You have a few options here, You have to get in it to shut it off, because you cant shut it off by any means getting up under it.

1st is call dodge roadside assistance at 1-800-363-4869 they will send somebody out to pick the lock likely.

2cd, if there is a spare key call somebody to bring it to you.

3rd, call a mobile locksmith in your area, they will come out and pick the lock, or use the wedge technique at the top of the door to pry it out and get it open.

If you can get up under it near the fuel tank, I would possibly try to disconnect the fuel pump wiring connector near the tank. but if you can't get to the connector without dropping the tank, then it won't work. Still that won't solve you getting into it but at least it will quit running.

I don't believe there are anything else that I haven't thought of, I personally would call dodge roadside assistance now and get them coming unless you have a spare key closer. If it has less than 36K on it, it's still under bumper to bumper warranty so they shouldn't charge you.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
