My van was starting normally until I drove to the gas station and turned it off. When I got back in the driver's seat and tried to start the van it just clicked. Everything powered on and worked. Except the engine wouldn't turn over. Any suggestions?

Just clicked. Wouldn't start. Everything like the lights and the music came on. You could listen to the radio as well. The van just wouldn't start. The day before this happened I was actually having problems with the ignition as well. The steering wheel locked as did the ignition. The original key wouldn't even unlock nor start the van

Possible failed starter or ignition switch OR both(from your description). ALL can be tested and verified ,BEFORE wasting money on incorrect guesses. Will you be trying to diagnose this yourself? Do you have a voltmeter?
