Question about 1998 Toyota Celica
So its winter.at first my key didn't even want to enter. so i dipped it in windshield washer fluid and the key entered with a bit of struggle. Next the key didn't want to turn, so I heated the key and the keyhole and it still didn't wanna turn. I know it's not the steering wheel lock and I don't know what else to do.

It sounds like your ignition lock cylinder has a problem. These can be replaced and keyed to match you present key by a locksmith. Call a locksmith for a estimate.

SOURCE: locked steering wheel
Something wrong with your Ignition key barrel,
Ignition key barrel jam in place.
Could be your anti-Theft System failed (including, but not limited) fuses, wirings, etc. If you have one.
So check the fuse boxes (one in the cabin & the other in the engine compartment).
To see if there is any burned fuses.
See Fuse Boxes:
See in the plastic cover, a plastic fuse puller ( use it to pull the fuses) once a time & check NOT burn.
If locked in place; do these steps:
1 - Juggle it several times in a very soft & slow burst.
2 - Juggle (Shake) the steering wheel RH & LH,
several times in a very gentle & slow.
3 – Try to remove the ignition switch
4 – Search the internet Google, www.about.com, www.youtube.com/video
For clues to help you sort out your problems.
