98 Chrysler Town & Country Ignition, steering wheel & gear shift are all locked up. Last night we stopped to get some fast food. When we came back out to the van, it would not allow us to move...

Sometimes the mechanical system that locks your steering wheel has too much vehicle weight which can prevent the key from turning. If you can move the vehicle back and forth while someone turn the steering wheel and turn the ignition switch.

I have a 2003 chrysler town and country and the key wont move at all. Any tips

Are the front wheels turned all the way left or right?
The steering mechanism may be locked, When it is the key cannot turn. If they are turned "hard" left or right pull down in the direction they are will be hard to pull AND at the same time turn the key. This should unlock the key IF the wheels are turned this way.
Let me know if this helped and if there is any additional information I should know to help you!

2001 Town & Country ignition switch locked

you need to call a locksmith to come to your home. They will replace one or more of the tumblers/cylinders inside the ignition key area. The EXACT same thing happened to me. The Chrysler dealership wanted to charge me over $400 to fix the problem. My wonderful mobile locksmith knew exactly what was srong the nanosecond I mentions the make and model! $49.00 later - FIXED! good luck!
