tqhe key goes all the way in and it will not turn at all to any position ?

Expert:  Gary replied 4 months ago.

if the battery is fully charged try another key if that will not work spray some WD40 into the key hole and work the key in and out hard a few times if it still will not turn put the key all the way in and with turning light pressure on the key tap the back of the key head with a few strikes with a small hammer and see if that will make it turn

if it still will not turn the ignition lock cylinder would need to be replaced as there is a broken or stuck tumbler inside the ignition lock cylinder
