So the key does NOT insert fully when you put it in?
It either has a stuck or broken tumbler inside the key cylinder. First thing to try is some spray graphite lube. You can get it at any parts store and just spray some inside where the key goes in then insert and remove the key a few times to get the lube distributed around the tumblers. If its just a stuck tumbler it will free it up and if it doesnt, then the key cylinder will need to be replaced. Most people find is cheaper to just call a mobile locksmith to come out and replace it rather than having it towed to a shop.
Try the spray lube first because it usually takes care of this issue.
