Try pulling steering wheel one way or the other to take the pressure off the pin that locks the wheel from the tumbler.

My ignition switch on my 2003 civic .is not working. i can put the key in but it wont turn forward or backwards. what should i do?

Have you tried to turn the steering wheel side-to-side, while turning the key?
The steering wheel may be very hard to turn, but moving it just a little may free-up the key
Sometimes parking against a curb, or turning off the car while the steering is turned all the way to one side, will cause the stering wheel lock to actually lock the key cylinder from turning.

My key wont turn, I have an automatic c-class mercedes the stering wheel is locked and the key wont turn in the ignition, all lights are working though and the battery has been checked

the Neiman blocker - the part from the key hub that block the wheel - has failed. To remove it the steering wheel must be dismantled completely and this is definitely a job for a shop - if you're not careful you can fry the entire electric system of the car.
