Cannot turn ignition key, steering wheel is locked


As you turn your ignition key, forcefully turn your steering wheel back and forth! This should do the trick.

Make sure the gear selector is fully in the park position. If it is not, you will not be able to turn the key to the position that locks the steering. This is by design, so that if someone has to turn the key off because of a runaway engine, they don't inadvertently lock the steering.

If the car is parked on a flat surface, and a potential liquid spill has occured in the gear selector, make sure the car is engaged securely in park.

Anti-theft system stuck triggered


Anti-theft does not disable the lock cylinder itself it only keeps vehicle from starting,lock cylinder will still turn and energize the electronics. Sounds like you have a stuck tumbler in the lock cylinder itself,some times turning steering wheel with one hand while trying to turn the key with the other will free it up.

I have difficulty turning the stering wheel in only one direction


Sounds like a spool valve in the steering box but the truck is too new to have that problem. Jack the front end up and see if there is still a difference left to right

To find out if the key is bad go to local lock smith and ask for a code key from the vin number they will tell you you need a chip that is correct but the key will open the door and turn on the ignition. if the new key works then your key is bad and the dealer can make you one for about 100.00 dollars if it still dont turn then the key cylinder is bad and it will need to be replaced good luck
