1996 Toyota Corolla key won't turn

(1996 Toyota Corolla)
in Minneapolis, MN on September 01, 2010
I put my key in the ignition and turn it and I can only get it about half-way to the "accessories" position. The "door open" warning then beeps. And I know my steering wheel is not locked. I can't even get my car into a shop. What do I do? Do you know how I can at least hot-wire it so I can take it into a shop?

Your ignition key cylinder is worn out. You need to get a new one and replace it. Just happened to me. Cost me under $40 and a meal for my big brother to thank him.
