Q: Ignition locked out.

Hello, you state that the key won't turn, i'm sure you have tried moving the steering wheel while turning the key and it still wont turn. If you have a second key that came with the car, try the other key. Sometimes a worn key just won't move the internal parts enough to clear the tumbler, but another key might work. If the other key works and it still feels a bit sticky while turning the tumbler could be worn and is in need of replacement. If the new key fails also, the key tumbler probably has a broken coded pin blocking the tumbler from turning. You may need to enlist the aid of a locksmith that specializes in automotive locks to remove and install a properly coded ignition tumbler.
