Had this happen to me. A can of wd 40 and paper towels, Dirt was the problem with the lock assembly. Squirt the wd 40 into the lock cylinder and insert the key, repeat until it works. ( this trick was from the dealer)

The tumblers in the lock cylinder are stuck and this prevents the key from turning. Spray some lubricant into the cylinder, insert the key in and out numerous times and also hit the end of the key with a rubber hammer while it is in the cylinder and this will help to release the tumblers.

1995 dodge caravan key stuck in ignition. No electrical / power


I had this problem. I called AAA. They sent over a locksmith who took out the cylender and did something to it removing the part that sticks (time elapsed, five minutes) Now it turns easily but once the car is turned on the key doens't need to be in the ignition at all! I have to be careful when I leave the car the ignition is in the right position or it can drain the battery. I always warn garage attendants when I leave the car. (tho apparently this is common) So this is a quick and easy fix. Just get a locksmith. Use your AAA because they will give you a discount. It only cost me fifty bucks.
