Some times just putting pressure on the steering wheel either left or right turnwill allow the key to be turned. What happens is corrosion sets up and does not allow the steering wheel to turn completely to its index position. Just jiggling it back an forth will allow it to index. After you get it to turn properly, squirt a little WD-40 into the key hole and work the steering back and forth while turning the key.

Shake ya sterring wheel from side to side and try turning ya key. The lock could be stuck and needs to be freed up. This should do the trick.

I can not turn my ignition switch i turn the steering wheel and it lock up on me


Wheel pressure on the sterring column will prevent the key from turning to start position, Try turning the wheel hard to the left to release the pressure before turning the key to start . If that doesnt do it then try to the right.
Before turning car off make sure the wheels are straight or take your hands off of the sterring wheel before you turn your key to the off position.
Lots of luck Jack
