Key is locked in the ignition swicth


If the steering wheel is under great tension, this can cause the key to be unable to unlock the steering column or turn in the cylinder. Try pulling the wheel first to the right while turning the key, and if that fails, then the left. Often this will release the tension and allow the key to turn and the column to unlock.

try to wiggle the steering wheel while trying to turn the key, if that doesnt work then i would say the ignition switch is worn the tumbler are worn, also try a spare key maybe the key is worn,if all fails then switch needs replacing, hope this helps.
