1) Could be a stone or something similar between the pads and disks on your front brakes. Wheel off check the disks are they pitted, rusted or scored. Look for stones or grit between pad and disk.
2) Could be a wheel bearing, jack up the car (Securely) see if there's any play in the wheels. Try to rock them side to side and top to bottom. If there's play (movement/judder) from the hub, your bearing needs replacing.
If the key will not turn it is possibly associated with the steering lock. Try turning the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. If that does not work, it sounds like you may need a new ignition tumbler.
This is a very common situation that arises when the steering-lock mechanism binds, it is usually because the wheels are jammed against the curb. Follow the instructions below to solve the issue:-- 1) First of all make sure that the transmission is in park. Set the parking brake to prevent the car from rolling farther against the curb 2) Pull hard on the steering wheel while turning it in both directions. This will normally free the wheel, but if it does not help. then, 3) Release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. Let up on the foot pedal just enough to rock the car slightly.and now turn the steering wheel again. this time the key should turn now. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth. Also even though the tumbler is the cause most of the time you should check the electrical part of the switch at times when it goes it won't allow the key to turn. Rocking the steering wheel is so that you can make sure that it is not turning due to the steering lock putting to much pressure on the tumbler.
There are a number of things it can be. Full wheel hubcaps can click or get rocks in them. Stones in the tires or a nail. An out of round brake rotor (does the car vibrate when braking?). The rear emergency brakes are not self cleaning and build up debris.
If you have someone to gently rev the engine while in PARK, to about the speed of 20mph, you can hear if it is an engine noise. Or if you can coast at 20 to 30 mph with the engine in NEUTRAL, you can tell if it is a rolling noise or something in the powertrain. Have the window down to get maximum effect.
You have several things to check now. Let us know what you find.
It's possible the tumblers have fallen in your ignition. I had a similar incident with a Focus I owned. Everything locked and I couldn't get the key to turn at all. They had to tow the car to the dealership and replace the tumblers.
