If I understand you correctly your haveing a problem getting the key to turn it will go in and come out but not turn in any dierection but the vehicle was running ok before this started ot happen.
If so their could be a problen with the mechinizem that locks the steering wheel their should be a button that you have to push in to remove the key it also releses the steering wheel lock .Try playing with it push it in move the wheel side to side put the key in take it out .Something might be stuck .
Its eighter this or you have a problem with the ignition switch or tumbuler system .What dose the key look like is it old and worn out looking .
Haveing to many keys on your chain can cause problems like this makes it to heavy and over time will damage the switch and lock system

There is a magnetic switch on the 'park' position. The car only starts or releases the key in 'park' is enabled. Maybe this switch is not working! Try to replace it!

My lumina wont start. the key turns into the second position but wont advance to the starting position much like something is blocking it. what can i do?


If there are other keys on the key chain that holds the car key remove them. Now try starting the car. If that doesn't work wiggle the key and depress brake pedal, move shifter lever into neutral and try starting the car.
If the car starts take it right to a repair shop there are several things that could be wrong with it .(neutral safety switch,shifter release,shifter , ignition switch)
If car doesn't start have it towed there and stay away from ignition switch no need to force it to start youe gonna break thekey in the switch and ahve a bigger problem.

Security on. car wont crank. can trun key wont


verify that you have a fully charge battery and that you have the same amount of voltage at the battery as at the starter when the key is turned to the start position. If not repair fault at positive cable either at battery or at starter. If voltage checks good. Use a remote starter and turn key to the on position and try to crank over engine with remote starter. if engine cranks over. You have a defective starter solenoid and starter must be replaced.
