Thanks but that didn't work.any other suggestions

Remove all other keys etc from ignition key so it is in the lock cylinder by itself... Hit the key squarely with a rubber mallet a couple of times then try to turn... Don't haul off and knock the hell out of it but a pretty good little short strike should do... Keep trying that, have had some success with that trick!!!.. You might as well hit it cause otherwise the ignition lock is going to have to be replaced! Got nothing to loose.......but the bill for towing and repair!!! Post results.
