Key won't turn

The key problem could be a worn out key that is not disengaging the tumblers in the ignition switch or tumblers that are sticking(squirt a little wd40 in the ignition cylinder and move the key in and out a couple of times) inside the switch. Make sure the shifter is fully in park.

Cannot get ignition key to turn and start engine

ALot of times, the security lock out goes bad in the locking cylinder and is usually covered by warranty even after the cars warranty goes out.

This issue was common with 98 hinda accords, the locking cyclinder would sudenly not recognize the key, kill the engine while driving, and not start. This was causing accidents and frustrated drivers who could no longer drive there car.

I would take it to a dealer and find out if its covered, also google it as it may be a known issue or recalled part.

You would know for sure if this is the issue as in most cars, the green or whatever color, Key light will flash when you put the key in, indicating it doesnt recognize the key.
