You have to remove the steering column. Best to find a repair book with instructions. Lost key? or what? If you lost the key take your VIN # , and proof of ownership, to a chev dealer and they can cut you another one.

Steering colom will not let key turn

Try this if steering wheel is turned slightly to one side meaning front wheels turn steering wheel to that sam side take strain off the lock in steering column and key should turn. I believe that the steering wheel is locked. If it doesn't work turn left or right and try again. Good Luck and contact if you need more help.
