Can't put key in the ignition

try moving your steering wheel back and forth while trying key. I don't see how you could move the steering column, its usually bolted in very tight. If you can move your steering column, it needs tightened up immediatly!

Key wont turn in ignition

There are a couple of things to look at...

Is your Wheel Turned too far one way (Steering Wheel)

Wiggle the Steering Wheel back and Forth (Pulling Hard is OK) and turn the Key to see if it because the Wheels TENSION is holding it in place

Try another KEY... If your Key is Worn, you may have to get a new key cut by the Dealership

Turn the Key over.... If it is a CUT 2 Side Key

If these do not work, then possibly you are using the wrong key, or something happened in the Ignition Cylinder itself..

Ignition key wont turn

Check the Following:
Using the Right Key?
Wheels turned too far?
Wheels against a Curb?
Is your Key Worn?

Pull the Steering Wheel hard back and Forth while you are Turning the Key... This may free it up if the Wheels are Jammed

Try another Key, yours may be worn

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville. When I put the key in, it will not turn. I tried wiggling the steering wheel but it will not move. Is there something else I can try or could it need a new ignition?

Make sure the shifter is completely in park.
But yes it could possibly be the ignition lock cylinder, or the ignition module on the steering colum.

My steering wheel wont move and my key wont turn over

you might need to get rough with it, a friend of mine had the same problem, we got a little physical with the wheel and ignition finally turned over, try to center your steering wheel before you park to save this from happening again

Unable to insert key into ignition switch

Try this pull the steering wheel as far to the left as possible and while it is in this position try to insert key. Sometimes the steering wheel lock will get in a bind and prevent the key from being inserted. Hope this helps!!!

1993 toyota camry ignition wont turn

the steering wheel SHOULD be locked if the key is not in the ignition and turned to the 1st position.  If you can turn the steering wheel more than an inch or so without the key n the first position,  the ignition switch (read: thingy you put the key in) is bad.   
Sometimes you may have to move the steering wheel slightly to one side or the other to get the key to turn,  this in itself is not a cause for alarm. Try it and let us know.  If this doesn't work, you are probably looking at a couple hundred dollars parts and labor to get the switch/steering wheel lock mechanism fixed.
Please rate all solutions.
