Sounds like its the ignition switch, they should replace it for you free of charge.

What could it be when I can't get my key to turn the ignition ... my car was parked at work and when I returned to start it after work it wouldn't turn and my steering wheel wouldn't move.


It is possible that the steering lock is applying so much pressure on the key lock it will not turn. Try turning the steering wheel one way or the other way and then try turning the key.

Kia rio steering wheel is locked and won't turn


Okay, I just had this same problem with my 2009 Kia Rio and I did this. So not to down everyone's post on here -- everyone is correct -- by turning the steering wheel back and forth and turning the ignition key at the same time is a correct method. However, after talking to a Kia Serviceman, he told me you have to do it hard -- meaning turning it violently back and forth hard (madman style). In order to do this operation, I had my wife sit in the driver side and turn the key while I was on her left side grabbing the steering wheel and violent moving it back and forth like a madman, and after about 2mins of doing it the key turned over -- problem fixed. Do not worry about breaking anything; turning the steering wheel violently hard is a must -- this was told to me by a Kia service Rep. Remember -- have someone assist you; either turning the key or violently turning the steering wheel back and forth. Hope this works for you!!!!!

2007 kia rio5 is hard to shift into reverse and 1st


this might be because of the rpm of the engine being high when the car is stationary.
or your clutch might needs replacing..

what you can do is try to adjust the clutch manually,
you can do this by getting under the steering column,you will see the clutch pedal,there will be a screw at the top of the pedal where it is hinged at the body. try tightening that to see weather your problem goes away...

Could be a problem with the key lock itself or the steering wheel locking mechanism. Hard to determine without disassembling the steering collumn.
