I've had several calls in the past of people stuck because their Ford ignition "would not turn". All were because they had parked the vehicle with the wheel turned all the way either left or right. If you turn the wheel just a bit more in the direction the wheels are already turned and hold it while trying to turn your igniton, you should be fine. Hope this is what you meant by "won't turn at all"

It sounds like the ignition tumblers have become disengaged from it springs. This would easily lock up the ignition cylinder. You may have to bite the bullet and go to the dealer or an aftermarket company for service. I hate telling you that, but you could replace it your self if you found one from a junk car. You keys wouldn't be the same and you have to be extremely careful with any airbags, so disconnect the battery before doing anywork. good luck

Doors wont lock when you turn on ignition.And the radio doesn't stay on when you turn the ignition off.


Your radio is connected to ignition instead of accesories. Not all car locking sytems lock doors with ignition. Check with the supplier if known or with nistallers.

1997 Toyota Camry Key Wont turn, Ignition Lock problem -1997 toyota camry FIXED!!! I see a lot of Douches with a capital D trying to charge people to fix this extremely common issue with this Camry ignition cylinder. OK pull the plastic guard off encasing the steering column. Get a phillips head screwdriver and remove the 2 screws holding the little off-white connector at the rear of the module(it has the wires to the ignition running to it). Get a pair of pliers or a small crescent wrench and while trying to turn the key use the wrench to turn the little rod sticking out of the back of the module. Make sure your turning it WITH the direction the key is trying to turn it. It should immediate be freed. Voila IT WORKS! AND THATS WHY PEOPLE DONT TRUST MECHANICS! HOW CAN YOU CHARGE SOMEONE FOR THAT INFO?

Try turning the steering wheel back and forth as you try to turn the key. I know it should be locked but sometimes kinda using a little force will unlock the ignition switch. I hope this helped you good luck.
