To late-You could have tried putting WD-40 in lock. Not a long term fix but generally works.

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

I have/had the exact same problem today. I tried the solution as posted, spray WD40 into the ignition switch. That didn't work. I then tried rocking the car back and forth (front to back). That worked. My guess is the key is worn. I will eventually need a new ignition switch. But until that time comes, I will keep rockin' the car.

is it the right key for that car? cause if not then that is the problem... if it is the right key, then you might have to replace the key cylinder cause you may have something broken in it...

SOURCE: Ignition key will not turn
Thanks to the person with the wd40 suggestion. stuff that little red tube right up there and liberally spray. I just had the panic when I went to drive to the store in my 98 town & country and the key didn't turn. I read lots of varying solutions and was ready to get the emergency locksmith out here to replace the barrel and then I stumbled across that suggestion here. It made so much sense...and it worked. The barrel will probably still need to be replaced at some point, but not urgent.
