Are you on flat ground.
are the front tries touching curbs or something not flat road.
tried the other key yet, or running "spareless" with just one key?

SOURCE: 1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

SOURCE: 1997 sentra ignition locked

With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

Have a 1997 buick skylark and my ignition key will not turn and the steering wheel is lock. what can I do?


if the wheels are turned you can try to remove the pressure on the steering wheel by turning the steering wheel just a little and then try turning the the key.sometimes when there is too much pressure against the steering the key won`t turn,if this is the problem.you also can try to use another key as if the one your using is worn enough it may not turn and another one will.if neither of these suggestions will work then you may have to replace the ignition key switch and keys.

Car is parked and off but unable to turn key in ignition and steering wheel is locked.


Try moving the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering lock will stick if there is pressure from the wheel. If this doesn't do it, try spraying or pouring some dry graphite into the lock cylinder ( the hole for the key) slide the key in and out of the lock quickly a few times to spread the graphite, then move the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key.
Hope this does it for you!

Key won't turn ignition in 1996 Geo Metro


The steering lock consists of a hardened pin and it may not be releasing any more although it shouldn't interfere with the turning of your key, just your steering unless the Geo is done differently.
If it was mine, I would get a little rough with it and turn the steering wheel hard from left to right while trying to turn the ignition key. 
Even disassembly is not easy since the lock area is supposed to be secure so it cannot be easily defeated.
