This is a common problem with the town and country. It is your ignition lock cylinder. They are a problem.
For the immediate future spray some WD40 of similar penetrating oil in the ignition. But that is not a fix. The lock will eventually jamb once and for all.
You need to replace the cylinder before it locks once and for all.
Take to a dealer or do it yourself.
Do it yourself process:
Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Do not miss this step or your immobilizer will kick in or you could deploy your airbag.
Remove the upper and lower plastic column covers from immediately behind your steering wheel. Screws from underneath.
Remove the black plastic cover from the upper column. Hex keys from above.
Remove the center black cover from the bottom middle section of the instrument cluster. Gently pop off the plastic clip in the middle under the cover.
Remove the white and black plastic retaining rings from around the ignition cylinder. They are help by their own plastic clips. Gently lift the clips with a small screwdriver.
Turn the key to the run position.
Push in the small metal retaining pin under the lock cylinder.
The lock will pop out.
Take the cylinder to a dealer along with the key.
Purchase a new cylinder and have it matched to your key.
Slide the new cylinder into place. You may have to turn the inner connection in the lock cylinder to the run position if it has moved.
Put it all back together.
Reconnect the negative cable.
That is it you will be good to go and it will remain reliable.
Hope this helps. Please rate if it helps you.
