SOURCE: my key will not turn,
your key is probably worn down and needs replaced, but you can try spraying a penetrating oil (WD40 or PB Blaster) into the lock cylinder this sometimes works

try tapping the lock cylinder with a small hammer...some times this will jar the tumblers and allow it to turn...if this works the lock cylinder is going bad and will need replaced

You need to replace the key switch. It has a pawl in it that unlocks the lever that holds the steering wheel in lock position.

You can try, but it likely won't work. Cut the stud in half, then it will come out. As far as the new one, You will have to grind the end of it a little bit. It's either that or remove the hub assembly. When you grind it, You grind a flat edge on the splined end.
