Question about 2003 Chrysler Town & Country
Saw your post regarding someone who's car kept running after ignition lock cylinder replacement. My wife's car just had iginition cylinder fail yesterday. I did the tap the key, use WD40, get the car home and replace cylinder fix.
Just got the new key cylinder in just fine but I am getting the key in ignition warning once the key is removed. I also notice yesterday that the wheel lock was not working when the key failed to work. It still does not work. Any ideas?

The lock cylinder in the steering column has to be changed. I have see these wear out.
To avoid having a new key combination for the ignition, when you go to the dealer and order new part, tell them that you want to have it in the same combination code as the original. You will have to loan them a copy of the key to have this done.
The last step is you will need someone who knows how to change the cylinder in the steering column. In many models of cars, this is an involved job.

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

SOURCE: Car Won't Fully Shift into Park
You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.
That should take care of your problem.

It sounds as if the lock and tumbler may be bad. In most cases were you can't turn the key its due to the wheel being in a locked postion and jambed up against the lock itself. In this case though with the wheel that does not lock, its leading me to belive that the tumbler came apart in a mid point of turning, hence no lock and no turn.

Thanks to the person with the wd40 suggestion. stuff that little red tube right up there and liberally spray. I just had the panic when I went to drive to the store in my 98 town & country and the key didn't turn. I read lots of varying solutions and was ready to get the emergency locksmith out here to replace the barrel and then I stumbled across that suggestion here. It made so much sense...and it worked. The barrel will probably still need to be replaced at some point, but not urgent.
