Re: the key does not move
Hello, The cause of the key not turning can be caused by either the key is worn out (try a newer & known good one) or because the ignition is full of metal filings from excessive use. Try using a can of WD-40 with a spray tube attached and squirt it into the ignition switch (this usually flushes out the filings and lubricates the switch).

Try moving the steering wheel both ways as you try to turn the key. If you parked with the wheels turned, it can put force on the lock pin in the steering column and make it very difficult to turn the key.
Either the key or the keyswitch is worn.To check the key switch with a little preasure on the key try moving the steering wheel back and forth this should release the steering lock and allow the key to turn If this dosent work get a key cut and it may work but if possible get a new one from a dealer they will get you one if you have the chassis number and proof of ownership.
have tilt wheel? try unlocking tilt and moving it as you try to turn key..replace key and/or ignition switch if that doesnt work..if it does ..the linkage is damaged in steering column to switch at base
I have had the same problem. I solved it by replacing the ignition switch. However the switch is adjustable on the steering column. Fastspeed it sounds like that your switch just needs to be adjusted up or down the column i can't remember which way it should go. You can find out by finding the rod that goes from the key to the switch down by the pedal (it usually runs on top of the column) while turning the key to start figure out which direction the rod is going. You need to move the switch so that the rod goes a little further into it (or out of it depending on which way the rod moves) and makes contact with the "start contacts" in the switch. Be carful not to move it too much in that direction or it will not move out of the start position when the key is moved out and/or not be able to turn off the car, both are not good problems to have. Let me know if this helps or if you need clarification.
