SOURCE: starting engine problems
It seems to be a PCM failure. (Power control module). I would suggest that you take it to a good mechanic. it is fairly easy to remove and reinstall. But if it is a different PCM you will have to do a re-learn on the PCM. that is not that easy. but if you find somebody to do it, it is worth it. Be sure and tell them you know that it is the PCM. I really hope this works for you. it is worth the try. Better than having all those problems.

SOURCE: hello, my steering wheel is
All you need to do is turn your steering wheel to the left all the way till it stops then put your key in while still holding the steering wheel to the left, turn the key to the on position this should release your steering wheel!

SOURCE: key won't turn in the ignition
You may need to have they key reprogrammed at your local dealer. The keys have a transponder built in them as an anti theft device. If the transponder becomes damaged, it will need reprogramming or replacement. *NOTE* This costs MUCH more than just having your key copied (between $30 and $75 US)

get a load test done on you battery and alter nator and check your starter for corrision check battery connections before you jump start it and when hooking up cables to your truck let it charge for a few minutes before you crank it if alternator is fried it will only run on juice of battery then will die.the clicking sound is your starter trying to engage but not enough cranking amps left in battery if you can get it going or take the battery out and take to a good auto shop and get them to load test it no point replacing a good battery just to find out it is alternator or starter
I personaaly think it may be alternator but suggest you test if battery is good starter as well ! more thing check that battery terminals are clean and tight

Try replacing the fuel filter first, but it sounds like your loosing your fuel pressure prim when the fuel pump is not working. The fuel pressure should be 62-65 PSI with the engine not running the the ignition key turned on and should drop about 5 psi when the engine is running. If you turn the engine off and check the fuel pressure, it stat steady for morn then 15min. If it drops fast, then you have a leak at your fuel pressure regulator (common) or your return fuel check valve which is located at your fuel sending unit.
Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, it could just be to dirty to pressurize the fuel system fast enough giving you the hard start.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, DEXRON II automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system.
If bleeding is attempted with the engine running, air will be absorbed in the fluid. Bleed only while cranking the engine.
Check whether or not the fluid level changes between when the engine is running and when it is stopped
