Try getting some lock lube from the hardware store, spray it into the lock, (never use any kind of oil just the graphite powder lock lube) spray the lock lube into the key cylinder and then work the key in and out a few times, if this doesn't fix it u will need a new lock cylinder.

Hello, this is typical in many mini-vans. This is a faulty ignition switch and this needs to be replaced. It's pricey and time consuming but it's not a part in which you can leave for another day becuase it is the most often crucial part to a starting system. If you need a price for one I would reasearch your local auto parts stores and under 100 dollars dot com and they may have your part. Thank You.

My ignition swithch wont turn to off position. It did several times now it will not.

take it to your local mechanic and he will most likely change the key socket its a sepparate part this should come with a new set of keys or the pins on the lock can be made to fit your old key its frequent when cars get old. A similar problem is that the key can be removed when the car is still running.

When turning streeing makes noise

I would like to help you with your problem. However, I have no idea what "streeing" is. If you meant to say STEERING, I would recommend that you check your belt tension and power steering fluid level.

Igition switch wont shut off

I had a similar problem. Check the connection under the dash just above the emergency brake. There is a block which runs North-south which is the wiring harness for the steering wheel. On that harness is a grey U shaped clamp. If it is not engaged all the up (toward the top of the car) then block will work loose and not allow the connection for the lock solenoid to dis-engage, locking your key in the ignition lock.

Key ignition

Steering wheel lock.
Turn the steering away from lock position, hold the steering wheel then turn the key .

No, it will not turn an inch, but slightly to relief the pressure off the key ignition housing, or wiggling it while turning the key.
