The key is stuck in the ignition and it will not turn.
If this is an automatic you can try wiggling the shifter while trying to turn the keys, there is a rod that actuates a lock in the lock cylinder unless its in park. If that doesn’t help the lock is going to have to come out. Have a mechanic from YourMechanic verify the problem and replace the cylinder.
