Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country

Ignition key wont turn with either of the keys I have

The ignition key for my 2002 Chrysler Town & Country won't turn. At first we could slide the key(s) in and out and it would turn. I moved it out of my garage today and it sat for the remaining of the day. I tried to start it in the afternoon and neither if the keys I have worked. I tried spraying WD-40 into the ignition switch to maybe clean out any metal in the tumblers and tried both keys again and still the same. I guess I can see if the dealership can cut me a new key and try that route. I don't know if the cold weather is playing a factor in the ignition problem. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thank you

Is the steering wheel locked hard over to one side? On some vehicles it is just about impossible to turn the key with the wheel locked hard over. If it is, take some pressure off the steering whell lock by turning the wheel in the locked direction and try to turn the key.

I experienced the same issue. Cold weather, along with wet air or humidity appears to possibly play a part in the aformentioned matter. Insert the key into the ignition and tap lightly on said key with the palm of your hand, several times. The issue appears to damaged or worn out ignition tumbler. Good luck!

It is possible that your key is warren out. you could have a different key made ,some times it can take a few times to git it right, if the key is badly worn out,but give it a few tries .if all fails you will have to replace your ignition tumbler's [key lock cylinder] if after trying the key ,please feel free to check back, ask if you have any further questions, Thank you.

Key wont turn in ignition


first make sure the steering wheel isn't in the lock position, putting pressure on the ignition switch. if that is ok, get the key cylinder replaced asap before it quits completely. (harder to change a that point) what condition is the key in? maybe try fresh one.
