Sunfire 1997 key not turning in ignition.

Had a similar problem with my Chevy Cargo Van..tumblers in igition old and worn, also noted key/wheel problem like yours. Be extra careful about putting in Park, keeping tension off steering wheel, and being sure key goes in smoothly. Sometimes you just have to jiggle the key and take tension off the wheel. (Beats replacing the ignition locks, etc.)

The problem started yesterday it was difficult to turn the key when i put it in th ignition. today i was unable to turn it at all I tried adjusting the steering wheel but still not working.

Your igniton internal parts is wearing, worn out. Try jiggling the key as you turn it. Also try putting your foot on the brake, put the car in neutral, and then try to turn the key. If not your going to need a new key lock/ignition.

Key won't turn

right key? just kidding I am sure you checked. sounds like the tumblers are stiff or jammed, try squirting plenty of WD40 in there and jiggle the key in and out, ensure the steering wheel is not putting extra tension on the lock by pulling against any tension with it. Good luck

Your car uses a transonder key, a key with a small chip embedded inside. The transponder is matched to the immobilizer unit in your car. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the immobilizer searches for that transponder, if it's not near the ignition, the car will just keep turning over and not start. Your only real options are to replace the steering lock or buy a transponder bypass unit, which I do not recommend. Just do a google search.

Ignition problem

You've tried pulling steering wheel hard from one side to the other while turning key? Always try to avoid shutting vehicle off with wheels turned, keep straight when turning off. Are you parking on a sloped drive by chance? If yes, press hard on brake pedal when trying to turn key, if no luck, try rocking car forward ,back, while trying to turn key.

Steering ignition switch lock

Jiggle the steering wheel back and forth while trying to get the key back in. Keep jiggling the wheel while turning the key until it all works out.

Ignition problem

did you buy this car used or new, if it was used somebody could have tried stealing the vehicle like you described by putting anything in it and possibly jammed the ignition switch which could be why it takes so long to get it into position.good luck.
