Try moving the steering wheel slightly to the left or right when your trying to turn the ignition key's. If that does not work try the second set of keys. At worst the tumblers has gone bad and the ignition cylinder needs to be replaced at the dealer so they can match the pass lock key's to your ignition switch. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Key will not turn in the ignition 2003 Monte Carlo SS

Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure!.. i think this may solve ur problem..

thank u rate me!!!

SOURCE: i can't start my car

Your ignition sounds locked to me. Try turning the steering wheel hard to the left or right or tugging while you try turning the key. I bet it will unlock. The car isnt broken, its actually a safety feature.,

Okay, to program a key you will need two keys that are already programmed, insert one key ignition turned on and engine off, remove the key and within 10 sec insert the second key and turn ignition on with engine off, remove that key and within 10 sec insert the key to be programed. you will need to do a 30 min.relearn with only one key,you will turn ignition on with engine off and wait about 10 min until light goes out then remove the key and repeat this step when light goes out repeat step one more time then use key to start car, computer has learned all info. you will now turn off engine, insert programmed key turn key on engine off then remove the key and insert key to be programed within 10 sec.all done good day.
