Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?

Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

2001 s10 will jump start. After it sits, I try to start it, it won't start, but the ignition keeps dinging after I turn it off and take the key out. I can jump start it and the dinging stops.

its sounds like a bad ignition switch-try to jiggle it and see if its stop after you have turned key off- also those dinging sounds are to warn you that you have left something on -usually headlights or maybe even your dome lights which would account for your battery dying

My horn dosent work

he broke the horn plate.
the part that pushs down in and turns to lock is broken.
he did not disconnect the wire before removing the steering wheel and pulled out the part that pushs in on the horn plate.
you will have to get the part from the dealer and it should take about an hour from start to clean hands.

After inserting key into ignition,key dosent turn to start car

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.

Key stuck in ignition

you need to rock the steering wheel back and forth as you attempt to turn the key off. some cars have a button that you have to press before you can remove the key.

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
