Ignition key wont turn


If this is the same key you have been using right along, and if no one has intentionally damaged the key switch, be sure your steering wheel is turned to the position that will allow the key to be turned on.
When parking a car, it is not unusual to turn the steering wheel to park. Then, the wheel can lock up, and you would need to force the steering wheel to get the switch to unlock so the key would go in.
Do that by applying just enough pressure to move the steering wheel back & forth, and try to turn the key on at the same time.
God's blessings.

It locks with the key turned off, if it wont unlock with the key on, wiggle the steering wheel hard if need be bask and forth and it may break loose ? sounds like it is getting worn on the lock system inside the steering column may need to replace the switch.

Steering wheel is locked and my key wont turn in the ignition. Have all power. Could it be the steering wheel lock or transmission or securtiy system?


I would say it is the ignition switch. You can try to get the steering wheel unlocked moving it, but usually when the key won't turn, it is the switch or security system. You will need to reset it to find out. Call the dealership if you don't have it.

Steering wheel is locked nd wont unlock even with


Typically, the steering is preloaded. This happens when car is turned off with some steering assist being applied (whether you know it or not).

Often you have to manhandle the wheel in one direction or the other while turning the key.
