Some times jiggling the steering wheel left or right will do the trick. the steering lock seems to be the culprit. some keys go in both ways meaning upor down side. try the trick in both directions.

You may want to try to slightly push / pull your vehicle to take weight / tension off the transmission, which in turn will allow you to turn the steering wheel enough to see if the ignition switch can be turned.

I have a 2001 sunfire, when you put the key in the igniation it will not turn


Are you saying the key won't turn in the ignition or the engine will not turn over?

If you are talking about the ignition, the first thing I would check is to make sure I had the right key. And then I would look for my less used keys and see if that made a difference. If none of the keys make a difference, then it is your ignition switch.

If the key turns in the ignition, but the engine does not turn over, then I would check the battery first and then the starter solenoid.
