Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant
My dad backed my car out of the driveway this morning. Now my key and my mom's spare key for the car won't turn in the ignition. The car is in Park.
Try turning your steering wheel while turning the key. Sometimes the wheel lock will prevent the key from turning.

In my Galant the problem was that the key was really worn down and it didn't have any ridges that would engage the spindles inside the lock cylinder. I almost changed out the whole lock cylinder when I decided to call out a locksmith. He made a key (yes, with a chip) that was slightly larger that engaged the spindles and let the key turn. He also said if I came into the shop he could make one that was to exact specs from the manufacturer as the code is located inside the door panel. I haven't made it there yet but the other key is working great for now. Will likely get the original made very soon.
