It started a few days ago, I jiggle the key and turn the steering wheel until it turned. Now the key will not turn at all. I want to know if it is the cylinder lock or ignition switch. How can I check to find out?

Lock cylinder problem is fairly common issue. You can get it repaired by a locksmith.

Tried lubrication and it is still won't turn. I can't find any other keys to the van just the one key. From the research I have done aren't these a common problem with the odyssey's and the whole cylinder lock has to be replaced?

One of the tumbler was bent and a lock smith replaced the tumbler for $65. Cylinder lock now turns.
On a separate issue my a/c fuse keeps blowing, if the expansion valve is bad can it prevent the refrigerant from circulating through the system. Has new compressor and new receiver/ dryer. Does this vehicle have an inline filter?

The fuse blows sometime ofter the car is running and the a/c is on. It takes a little while for it to blow.
