Default Two ?s from newbie

Not sure this is correct place for these, but I have two possible connected problems with 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab. First, on occasion when I turn on the truck I have no power to the radio and air-conditioner. Since I'm in Texas that is a problem! I figured out if I turn off the truck and then turn it back on again it will work fine. It happens infrequently but it's annoying. Second, I am having problems with the ignition cylinder. It sticks and the key won't turn, moving the steering wheel doesn't help, but jamming the key in as hard as physically possible will work most of the time to allow the key to turn. I suspect changing out the cylinder will work, but I'm not anxious to change out my key as the automatic door lock/unlock is on that key...any suggestions? Thanks.

sounds like the jamming of they key may have rubbed a wire in the steering column effecting the radio and ac when the wheel is turned.
