Hi. Does the key turn in the ignition?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 11 months ago.

Ok. The anti-theft will not prevent the key from turning.

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 11 months ago.

Are you sure your gear shifter is in park?

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 11 months ago.

Also try turning the steering wheel in either direction while trying to turn the key. Even if the wheel is hard to turn.
