Q: Key won't turn and car won't start.

Car won't start and the key will not turn.

A: If the key will not turn in the ignition no...

If the key will not turn in the ignition normally you can try to turn the steering wheel side to side quickly while simultaneously attempting to turn your key and that may sometimes allow the key to turn. If the key still will not turn your may have an issue with the mechanism that locks your steering wheel when the key is removed from the ignition. Sometimes the steering wheel lock is integrated into the ignition lock cylinder. If that is the case on your vehicle than replacement of the ignition lock cylinder will likely fix your problem. Seek the assistance of a professional to inspect your ignition system and make the proper repair necessary to get your vehicle starting properly again.
