Most cars have a steering lock that engages when you turn off the car. If you try wiggling the wheel while you turn the key, that might free up your steering. If just wiggling it a little does not work, try pulling it one way and turning the key, giving it a little force turning the wheel (sometimes the wheel locking mechanism gets stuck) ... if it still doesn't work, try turning the wheel the other way and turning the key. If you are still locked up .. you'll probably need to see a mechanic about it. Hopefully the wheel lock is just a little stuck and you can free it up yourself -- it's free that way :-)

Chrysler grand voyager 2.8crd, failure to start after stopping, engine turns over , release key and try agin, sometime will start

Best guess would be the wiring in the ignition switch. From what you describe the problem is intermittent. A loose or broken wire or contact in the switch might explain this.

You will need to go to a shop to have this properly diagnosed and repaired as it may require removal of the steering wheel and air bag to get to the switch since it is on the steering column.

Other solution might include check for current at various engine components while key is on.

I hope this gives you some direction.

several things to try, try turning steering wheel in both directions and holding there while turning key, this checks to see if steering wheel lock is binding , lubricate lock with wd-40 or silicon spray, sticky inside? another choice is try different key as old one is worn and not disengaging all the tumblers, all fails you need new ignition cylinder.

I have a 2000 Chrysler Voyager and both the ignition and steering wheel have locked up. Is there a way to fix this without replacing any parts?

usually you need to put a little pressure on the steering wheel turning it one way or the other while you try turning the key until the lock releases this often happpens if the wheels are turned when you shut the car off but can happen at any time

My key will not turn

Hum...Try this.

With you left hand on the steering wheel and your right hand on the key, turn the key slightly until you feel resistance. Keep the pressure used to turn the key and pull the steering wheel to the left like you are turning left. If this doesn't work then turn the steering wheel to the right while trying to turn the key. If the problem is caused by the steering wheel lock this should allow you to turn the key and starrt your car. It is a very common issue and shows up alot when cars are parked with the wheels turned somewhat to one side or the other.

Location of clock spring on 2000 Grand Voyager

The clock spring is located under the steering wheel, the airbag must be disarmed (if not done correctly can can serious injury) and the steering wheel removed to replace it, a dealer will charge about $200 for this repair.

Steering Wheel Locked Up

Do you have the wheels turned all the way in one direction? If so turn them more in the same direction and try turning the key.

Steering column frozen

You may have bound the steering wheel up against the locking mechanism.

Put the key in the ignition, and try to turn, while attempting to rotate the steering wheel to the left or right. When you rotate it the right direction, the key will turn fully and you can start the car.
