The key may be worn out. Have a dealer cut you a brand new key and then try that key. If that doesn't work, then you will have to replace the cylinder lock.
My key is stuck in the ignition in the start position and will not come out. I took the council...
my key will not turn to the off position. which means the key is stuck in the ignition.
The automatic transmission shifter may fail, or a wire may break near the shifter causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.
