The problem could be just a worn key. If your key is worn, go to the dealer and have a new key made. Don't have a replacement key made at the local hardware or such like, you'll end up with a key that still won't work.
If the key is not worn, first make sure you didn't end up with someone elses keys. We once had a friend accidently take the wrong coat and ended up with someone elses keys.
After ruling out the others you will have to go to a dealer and have them replace the ignition switch, only dealers can do this and make the key match. You can get a replacement switch from an auto salvage but the key will not match the rest of the car.

The battery could be low, also clean cups around battery terminals, ensure that air filter is not clogged. If problem persists, it could possibly be the alternators. :)

Chrysler 2003 ignition key wont turn

your key may be overly worn and need replaced, but try jiggling the key and steering wheel at the same time. if that doesnt work try sraying a penetrating oil, like WD40 or PB Blaster, into the lock cylinder. it could also be the gear shift safety switch not disengaging or a faulty ignition switch

Key won't turn in ignition

The lock cylinder in the steering column has to be changed. I have see these wear out.

To avoid having a new key combination for the ignition, when you go to the dealer and order new part, tell them that you want to have it in the same combination code as the original. You will have to loan them a copy of the key to have this done.

The last step is you will need someone who knows how to change the cylinder in the steering column. In many models of cars, this is an involved job.
