Key stuck in ignition on 89 plymouth sundance

My grandson put the key of my 89 plymouth sundance in crooked and now the key won't come out or turn. I tried turning the steering wheel back and forth as much as I could turn it and it didn't help at all. Is there anyway to get the key out without taking the ignition apart?

Without taking the ignition apart, you will really have to do some work, what you might want to do is get in the passenger side, grab the key with a good set of pliers, and get some leverage. If you grab, move the key back and forth while jiggling the wheel, the lock should come loose and the key should slide out. Be careful not to turn the key too far, because then you'll break it off, hope that works.

Ignition wont turn steering wheel locked

If the steering wheel was in a hard turn when the ignition was turned off and the key was pulled, maybe it's just in a bind. Put the key in the ignition and pull the steering wheel hard to the left, then to the right while trying to turn the ignition.

No start

Sounds like your starter is about the only thing you have not changed. Check that you have power going to it when you turn the key if thats not it try replacing the starter.

1998 Plymouth grand voyager ignition won't turn

I have had this happen on my 98 Voyager. Just have a new key cut. This new key will sometimes cure the problem. The older keys get worn out and won't unlock the ignition. Try this before a much more expensive and time consuming change of the ignition.

The key goes all the way into the ignition but cannot turn either way steering is locked gearshift is in park I need help

Try moving the steering wheel both ways as you try to turn the key. If you parked with the wheels turned, it can put force on the lock pin in the steering column and make it very difficult to turn the key.
