Many times, simple lubrication is the solution. Try a light lubricating oil and use the spray tube to get it into the lock mechanism then excercise it using the key. I am not sure where you live, but I have found a spray lube called "LubeGel" at WalMart that really works well - it's basically a very thin grease, so it's a bit more substantial than oil but it does not get thick when it's cold so it's a great lubricant for small mechanisms.

2004 gmc envoy. key wont turn in the ignition, wheel is not locked shifter wont move, and brakes are very stiff. looks like key wasn't all the way in off postion when removed

The lock cylinder may be jammed and will probably need to be pulled and fixed or replaced. Excessive wear over time with the pins in the cylinder can cause this, particularly with older vehicles.

Key wont turn ignition . tried jiggling tapping with key in and lube nothing seems to work .how do get ignition lock out

Removal of most ignition cylinders requires the key to be able to turn in order to release the cylinder. Has the cylinder been acting up/stiff prior to now. Have you another key to try? Removal of a cylinder that won't turn gets expensive as other components may have to be replaced as damage will usually occur when removing the oroginal cylinder

Ignition key stuck

could be an issue with the cable that goes down to the shifter being stiff in cold weather. The key lock may not know the shifter is in park to be able to turn to the lock position.

Key won't turn and steering is lock on a 1990 Oldsmobile Calais?

Try to wiggle the steering wheel as you turn the key, the wheel may have some force on the lock so turn wheel to the right and try to turn key then turn left and try the key again. if this doesnt work then the ignition is worn and you will need to wiggle the key to get it to start also try to spary a little wd40 in the ignition key hole and work the key inside the ignition.

Can a stiff gear shifter be caused by a bad ignition switch

try spraying some WD40 or similar into the ignition switch, it may have run a bit dry
use a thin tube which you should get with the lubricant and put the end of it into the key hole and give it a squirt
hope this helps

Your car uses a transonder key, a key with a small chip embedded inside. The transponder is matched to the immobilizer unit in your car. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the immobilizer searches for that transponder, if it's not near the ignition, the car will just keep turning over and not start. Your only real options are to replace the steering lock or buy a transponder bypass unit, which I do not recommend. Just do a google search.
