Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The ignition lock tumblers are sticking. The lock cylinder may need to be replaced. But try this trick first: Remove the key and spray some WD40 or equivalent into the key slot. Now insert and remove the key several times. Then reinsert the key and tap the end of it several times with a small hammer. This usually loosens up the tumblers and allows the key to turn.

Try that and let me know if it helps.
