Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
The keys have worked perfectly for 5 years and suddenly they would not turn in the ignition. We used the auto start, entered the car and then tried to turn the key and nothing. Very stange. It does not seem like a bad ignition as the keys haver never had a problem before with sticking or anything else. Thanks for the help.
You are going to laugh at this but it works, believe me, get a hammer or rubber mallet, with your key inserted in the ignition, hit the end of it, not hard to bend the key but just a little wack. A couple of times if you need to, Walla, your key will turn, I have had issues like this with my town and country. I always keep something handy to give the key a wack so the ignition will work.

I tried the hammer idea and it worked for me!
Thanks!!! You saved me the cost of a tow and only the Lord knows what the dealership would have wanted.

Try holding the wheel one direction or the other and see if the key wont turn then. sometimes the locking colunm makes it where the key wont turn so you you have to try to turn the wheel and the key at the same time to get it loose ive had it happen to me many times
