Question about 2003 Chrysler Town & Country
Van was parked and when we went to restart it the key would not turn. The steering wheel is not locked and I found that to be strange. It's almost like the ignition is siezed. Help?
Just had the same thing happen to me with my 2001 T&C. As soon as I explained this to the tow truck driver that came to tow my vehicle to the shop, he chuckled and said "put the key in the ignition and then hit the key with the palm of your hand a couple of times." Apparently the tumblers just weren't lined up properly. He still suggested getting the ignition replaced, but at least now I know what to do. Hope this works for you.

Same thing happened to me ion my 2003 T&C. Even though I managed to turn the ignition on after perhaps 20 minutes of trying, I brought it into Chrysler. They replaced the key mechanism.
Not under warranty. About $300.
Typical Chrysler ****.

Thanks for the great "tow truck driver tip". It worked like a charm.
For sometime I periodically would not be able to turn the ignition until I move the steering wheel. Today, the ignition would not turn no matter what I tried. I was prepared to call a tow truck on Monday.
