The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.
several things, does key go in and out easily, turn steering wheel in both directions while turning key. sometimes the steering wheel lock binds the lock cylinder and turning wheel releases the pressure and it will turn. other than that the ignition cylinder is jammed, wet key lightly with lubricant such as wd-40 and a light bit in key hole and try key again, If key is heavily worn out , try a different ignition key as it might not be disengaging all the tumblers in lock, if all this fails you need a new cylinder.
It is a key issue most likely, try unlocking the car and taking a little more time to insert key into igniton than you normally do to see if that works. It can be a coding/timing issue in the anti-theft logic and most times replacing the key is all that is needed. otherwise it is the EIS acronym for electronic ignition switch which is a major control unit for the starting and anti-theft system.
the lock cylinder may have to be replaced, have you tried moving the steering from side to side while trying to turn the key, if you do need to get a new ignition lock cylinder have a lock smith key it to fit your old keys
Does a light come on that looks like a lock?? This is GMs Passlock problem. It a fault in the ignition cylinder. The car won`t turn over. If you remove the key, the car will start in 8 to 10 minutes. Some have found that spraying an electronic spray or silicone based spray in the ignition and rapidly turning the key back and forth may help. Repeat this several times. Replacing the ignition switch is an expensive option, but may have to be done.
