Check to see if turning the steering wheel helps. Sometimes the lock gets jammed with the anti theft. IF that is not the case then it could be the ignition switch or if it is an manual transmission, the interlock for the neutral safe switch could be bad

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!

I have a mazda 323 1994. i put a ignition in it but now the key wont turn. ?????

If you put a new ignition switch in it is possible that the pins in the barrel are sticking and are not moving as they should.. take the key out and put powered graphite in the key hole and move the key in and out a few times and that lubricates the pins.. If it still will not turn then best check that the key is correct for the barrel .

The key wont turn in the ignition, i move the steering wheel alittle, but the key still wont turn. i have tried moving the shifter a tad, and they does not work. i have to turn the key and wheel for long...

Try this, put your foot on the brake, put the car in neutral, and try turning the key. If this works your ignition is going bad and needs replacing. IF it dosn't work it still needs replacing.

Put the brakeon while trying to turn the key, also try turnin the steering wheel, I know it is locked but just put a little pressure on it it should move one way or the other a half inch. If it's standard be sure to put the clutch pedal in as well.
