Question about Lexus Cars & Trucks
I really hope this is the problem! Depends on the year of car.
Sometimes, the steering can get "jammed" by the front wheels being turned so the steering is locked up. To see, you would need to pull hard on the steering wheel whilst trying to turn the ignition key, first to the right and then to the left to see if the locking ring on the steering column inside is bound up.

try and turn your steering wheel a little bit left or right and and the same time try and turn the key when it turns toward the dash then try and turn the key back. try and repeat this several times if neccessary. this should work. please rate this solution. thanks

Hi my name is adam and it sounds like the ignition is stuck due to the position of the wheel. You need to turn the wheel so that the pressure is relieved from the locking mecognism. Then take the key out and try to turn the key again.

try turning the wheel to the right/left while turning the key in the ignition. You have to apply some force. Your car is probably outliving its road life.
Cheers & Best Wishes

Sounds like the ignition lock cylinder has gone out on you. Also a possiblilty is the ignition switch itself, though less likely than the other.
