    My ignition key wouldn't turn in the cylinder too, so I got out the spare key and it worked fine, much smoother in the door and trunk locks too, that was my problem, worn out ignition key. I'm going to get a new ignition key made as a spare now. Also, the Firestone Auto Repair Shop wanted to replace the whole Ignition Cylinder at a cost of $375.00.
