SOURCE: Spare tire location?
With the new 2008 models, the spare tire was moved from the rear of the van to a spot below the front seats. The lug for the tire winch is located under a round cover in the floor just in front of and between the two front seats. If you look under the van, you will see the black tire-shaped cover for the spare.

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

Testimonial: "Thank so very much! It was the battery and easily fixed with a new duralast from AutoZone!"
Same symptoms here. Vehicle towed to Dodge, been there a FULL 3 weeks, they seem stuck, telling me the part ( timing module? ) was bad, which releases the steering lock solenoid which in turn allows the key to turn among other critical functions.
I have read of this same failure over and over, so if there was a bad run of parts, they should have been identified and pulled from inventory.
Apparently, the dealership is stalling for reasons I do not fathom, and are not inclined to seek out advanced knowledge... just doing what the company tells em to do, which means I have no truck while they fail to be able to program these modules, one after the other.
So, it seems the Dodge dealer might either have a software problem with their equipment, or they got the procedures wrong for fixing it.
What they do not have is any curiosity or urgency to resolve the problem.
If I take it to a MB dealership, they will not honor the warranty.

Does the key have a chip in it ? I'm not familiar with the car but it sounds like you might be at odds with the anti theft system. Check with the dealer and see what information they have. Good Luck
