Regarding the ignition problem with the proper key being inserted and not turning..I had the same problem several times and was also stranded. I learned if you put the key in and tap the end of the key (as if you're trying to tap it further into the ignition) with a rubber handled screwdriver a couple times it will then turn and start right up.

2000 Grand Caravan.....initially, the instrumentation cluster would intermittently extinguish. Hitting a bump, it would come back on. Most recently, the van will not start. No instruments, no click, no nothing. If you whack the top of the dash with your fist, all instruments come on, and the van starts. I have not repaired it yet, but intend to pull the dash and check for bad solder connections.
