By 100,000 miles the ignition key tends to wear out and should be replaced or it may not work as well in the door locks or ignition switch.

    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.
