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.

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
