SOURCE: ignition key won't turn
It sounds like you have a bad tumbler/key cylinder

Testimonial: "I was thinking that was the problem. Thanks for your insight. I really don't know."
This situation is called "Torque Lock". The Solution is simply to Turn the Steering Wheel Slightly in the Opposite Direction to remove Pressure on the Steering Lock Pawl. Usually this occurs when turning off the Key while Pressure is Applied to the Steering Wheel from a slight "Roll-Back" or from the Power Steering being forced all the way to it's limit in one direction or the other. Always be sure that the Steering is allowed to relax prior to switching the Ignition Switch to the Locked Position. This is a very common problem most frequently experienced by women rather than men. Let me know if this helps!

Is the gear shift button stuck in, if so hit the gear shift a couple of time and that should unstick the botton, allowing you to remove your key

try wd40 and shaking the key, what happens is one of the tumblers get stuck and wont let the key turn if that dosnt work let me know worst case you will have to replace the ignition its about $35 to $40 and a few hours.

Tips for a great answer:
IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE
can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel
a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping
then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn
steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.
wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after
that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.
if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and
key has to be manually removed.
