Try turning the steering wheel hard in each direction while trying to turn key. Wheel lock may be holding key. If not, sounds like you need to replace ignition lock cylinder or the ignition switch. Good luck, DW

It's possible the tumblers have fallen in your ignition. I had a similar incident with a Focus I owned. Everything locked and I couldn't get the key to turn at all. They had to tow the car to the dealership and replace the tumblers.

SOURCE: 200 Jeep GC Ignition Stuck in Lock Position

When you parked the vehicle, are your front wheels pointing straight ahead or in a turn position. What has happened to me in the past, is the pressure the tires put on the steering wheel lock when in a turn position is greater than the pressure you can apply with one hand on the key.
What you may want to try is turn the wheel in the same direction, therefore relieving the pressure, and you should be able to turn the key. Hope that works for you. jpp

You can remove the housing to expose the switch and see if the lock pin has a problem but I would simply replace the switch. Get the complete switch NOT just the tumbler replacement. Also if you want to use your original key (which opens everything else) have the new lock keyed by a locksmith before you install it. Otherwise you will have to carry two keys from that point on.

  1. Put the key into ignition and turn the key to On, but don't start the engine.
  2. Next, turn the wheel to the direction that it got stuck in as far as it will go.
  3. If it is still stuck, turn the wheel the other direction as far as it will go.
  4. If it is STILL stuck, take the steering wheel off and all the hardware. There should be a plate that has a small rod, no more than 2" long going though it. That's the lock. Pull it out and it won't lock anymore.

1997 chevy s10 blazerdash wont light up when key


the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!

so, there are two main areas for problems, the lock cylinder itself, and the rest of the system. This involves a rod, sometimes tilt column, and a switch.
Typically, the issue is a lock issue, to tell, where, does turning the key feel like it is jambed, or does it feel that the lock can turn , but something else is jambed?
