How do I unlock the ignition?
When your car is turned off, the steering wheel can lock into place. When the steering wheel is locked, the ignition will be locked as well, and you will not be able to turn the ignition past Lock. When this happens, turn your steering wheel to both sides while trying to turn the ignition. This will unlock both the steering wheel and the ignition.
