Had the same problem with a 99 dodge van. tow truck driver put the key into the ignition and tapped it a couple of times while turning the key to freed it up and start the engine. works as long as you leave the key in the ignition so i use a second key to lock/unlock the van. hope this works for you. gary

you have bent tumblers inside the lock cylinder. A replacement will be needed for this repair. The old one is unuseable since the tumblers are stuck inside and the key does not turn it no longer

Cannot remove the ignition key


check the linkage on the transmission from the shifter. or not try wiggling the key up and down. if the cable is broken try to move the linkage on the trans all the way foward ( towards the front tires) with the tires blocked because it may roll. try it then.

Ignition locked will not turn


easiest way to handle this problem is as you turn the key turn the steering wheel back and forth not real hard bust firm and try and turn the key foward and back at the same time. usually what happens is the little detente inside the column gets stuck just right and stops the tumbler from moving
