Cut the wheels hard with the steering wheel and see if the key will turn. If not a replacement of a new lock cylinder is needed

Is the car parked with the steering turned tight or on a hill with the wheel turned in such a way as to load the steering? It may be as simple as turning the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key in order to release the steering lock mechanism.

hi from uk please try this ? with key removed try gently turning steerwheel to the right if you feel a slight spring in steering ? hold on the spring and insert key it should work and release lockand turn ign on ? if steering is springing on left ? try as above the same method not unusual for steer lock to prevent turning key as the steering even in straight position ? the necessity to gently release load on lock is req'd to allow key to turn/unlock the steering lock from the steering column practice doing the above each time you fit key to unlock steering and tuning ign on to start hope this helps

Sometimes the Police will use a "Slim-Jim" and help a Citizen. Or call a Locksmith especially if you have Road Service or Autoclub.
