My 1999 Cirrus had the same problem. The key went in and wouldn't turn. I had a mobile vehicle locksmith come by, take the ignition cylinder out in under 5 minutes, replace the wafers (tumblers) and then replace the cylinder in a few minutes. If you use a key cut to original specifications (which a locksmith could easily figure out from the old key and recut), rather than a copy of a copy with rounded instead of jagged edges on the key, it may just work for you. That is what the locksmith told me. He quickly cut me 2 keys. However, the ignition cylinder was so worn that he then replaced the wafers (tumblers). He only charged me $40.
