HELP!!!! It is Sunday and I was getting ready for a short trip and the ignition key won't turn. I tried turning it over, rotating the steering wheel, pushing the shifter to make certain it was in Park, trying my other key. Nothing works. Anybody got any more ideas that i should try. It drove and started fine yesterday. I am at my wits end. Please advise.
Spray some graphite into the cylinder, or a little bit of wd-40 on the key (just enough to lubricate, then wipe most of it off). Try to get the transmission out of park with key override (if equipped) and see if it will start in Neutral. One of those may work.

my 99 f150 will do the same thing if the truck is shut off with the wheel turned just right. the only thing you can really do is either push the key twards the driver side door really hard and try turning it, move the colum up and down if none of that works jack the front end up so you can get the anti theft thing to unlock.
