    Your Ignition key lock cylinder is internally jambed and will have to be replaced. Your local dealership or locksmith could handle this repair. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=43081&car_brand_names=Plymouth

    wd40 in hole. Put key in hole. Hit key with hammer about 4 times. Everything freed up and key works fine.
    Hammer solution is good.
