Your steering locks could be in a bind. Is your steering wheel turned to the side? Try moving the steering wheel while trying to turn the key. If this is not the case, then you most likely have either a worn-out key or a worn-out ignition lock cylinder assembly.
I would first try a different key if you have one. If there is not another key, I would take the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the dealer along with proof of registration and picture ID, and have them cut a NEW key using the key codes for your vehicle. If this does not work, then you will probably have to replace the ignition lock cylinder assembly.

A/: Your best bet is to go to the auto parts store ask for some dry powdered graphite try lubing the key hole with that.If you get the key in and it to turn your best bet would be to replace the cylinder.
