Key won't turn in the ignition.

Asked by Feb 15, 2015 at 11:26 PM about the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We are having problems getting the key to turn in the ignition. It has taken us an hour at times before the key will turn. The amount of time it takes is not consistent. We have tried a graphite spray but that did not help, nor did using a copy of the original key. Do you know what is wrong and if it is an easy DIY or do we need a mechanic? Thank you.
