steering wont lock and ignition wont turn

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

There are a few things that could be broken on your Dodge Durango, ranging from a damaged component inside the steering column, to an ignition lock cylinder that also has damaged or stuck parts that will need to be replaced in most cases. The best way to determine exactly what’s causing this problem is to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete an ignition key won’t turn inspection; as it’s very likely that both symptoms are related.
