Ignition switch is jammed after removing key

try holding the steering wheel hard over left, try to turn the key. then try hard over to the right while trying to turn the key. The steering lock may just have too much pressure against it. for instance if the steering wheel was turned before removal of the ignition key. If it still doesnt work try a bit of lock lube or WD40 in the key slot and run the key in and out of the ignition to free up the lock.

Yesterday, my 2004 Nissan Quest had the front end bushings and control arms replaced. The car still has a "knuckling" noise when I'm making semi-hard left or right hand turns. Forget about hard turns!! ...

it usually does but you have also an intermediate shaft that connects steering column to steering rack, I know those at times can cause the exact noise you describe although what you replaced usually does.

Locked steering wheel

Try having someone rock the car frontwards and backwards, while you rock the steering wheel back and forth and try to turn the key - it sounds like you're jammed up hard against the steering column lock.
