Hi there. This problem is caused by a lack of mobility in your ignition cylinder. The bumps on your key depress a series of channels in the cylinder in the correct combination in order for it to release its locking mechanism. If one of these channels is not depressed the cylinder will not allow your to turn the key. A replacement of the ignition cylinder would be the solution to your problem.
