Most vehicles can have the ignition cylinder removed while in the neutral position. If you can remove your lower steering column cover, you should be able to remove the bolts and pull it out. I do recommend disconnecting the battery first though.

I cant start my van because the key wont turn.


Try putting a little oil from the dip stick on a key, then try it. Or spray some WD-40 into the lock.

Lock cylinder replacement 00 safari van


Before you replace the cylinder, you might want to try cleaning the cylinder first, its fairly easy and quick.
Use some WD-40 or equivalent and place the spray tube into the tumbler opening were the key would normally go. Make sure you have a rag or something to catch the excess that runs out. Try to flush it out as much as possible.
Then using a can of compressed air, blow the cylinder out, you may need to repeat as necessary. The process should clean debris that is sticking the tumbler.
Give it a try, it should save you some time and money.
Let me know.

Key stuck in ignition Plymouth passenger Van 97


You need to find a way to replace the lock cylinder. Will the key tap in all the way to turn it? That would make it easier to get the cylinder out.

WHEN I TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH OFF MY ENGINE KEEPS RUNNING


The ignition lock cylinder has to be what I guess you would call timed, if they get this it wrong then the key will do things like what is happening to you, it is an adjustment that will require they remove and reset the position of the lock cylinder.
BOTTOM LINE, TAKE IT BACK.
