Very common problem, if your lucky you will be able to just get by with key cylinder, if not you have to replace the complete key cylinder housing assembly. it would probably be a good idea to have a shop repair this as you will be working around air bag and steering column. most of them that our shop have done customers drive that way for quite awhile.some sprayed lubricants into key cylinder and had problem off and on for months till it finally gets to the spot it sounds like yours is at. try the key cylinder first or when it's removed try to work it by itself, if it works good then you'll need the key cylinder housing. depending how bad they are wore you may need both parts.

I have a hard time starting my 2000 dodge caravan. It will turn over but the wont start right away, I have to hold the key for several seconds before it will start. Is this a fuel pump issue?

You may download the system when the engine is not used too long you might have problem with the coolant sensor that sends a signal to the PCM when the engine is cold to inject more fuel. Thanks

Switch key will not turn. hung up. won't crank

Try turning the steering wheel a little. You may have too much pressure on the ign. This happens when you have the wheels turned and turn the key off then let the wheel go and it turns and leaves pressure onthe key. Try turning the steering wheel either right/left until it turns a little (just to relieve the pressure) and then try truning the key. To avoid this make sure your steering wheel is at rest before turning the ign off..

Ignition Key will not turn

have a new key cut to specs from a good kocksmith or the dealer. don;t have a copy made of that key as you will just get another worn key. Once you get a good key cut to specs, spray some carburator cleaner in to the switch to clean out any debris. run the new key in and out several times. Do this several times and the try to turn the ign switch. Hope this help. leave feedback if it does.
