Today, after fueling up my car - I went to start the engine and the key wouldn't turn in the ignition, the steering wheel wouldn't move and I couldn't push the brake pedal down. After trying several times...


if you turned the steering wheel after shutting off the engine and the steering wheel caught the lock and tried to turn back it would hold pressure against the ignition lock cylinder. if it happens again try pulling the steering wheel hard one way or the other and turn the key at the same time.

'97 GMC Jimmy: engine turns over but car won't start, electrical?


Sounds like a bad ignition switch but could also be a bad connection to the ICP or just a plain old bad ICP (Instrument control panel). The ICP needs to be able to communicate with the ECM, Brake Control Module and the SDM (sensing and diagnostic module). If these can not "talk" to each other the vehicle will go into a lock out theft mode...assuming it has a factory VAT system. But I would bet on the ignition switch first...seen it many times.
