    you need :
    1
    Make sure the transmission is in park (for cars with automatic transmissions).

    2
    Set the parking brake to prevent the car from rolling farther against the curb.

    3
    Pull hard on the steering wheel while turning it in both directions. If this doesn't free the wheel, move on to step 4.

    4
    Release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. Let up on the foot pedal just enough to rock the car slightly.

    5
    Turn the steering wheel again. The key should turn now.
