Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

That weird he would say thatm wd40 is made for those types of things, so have you tried anything yet?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the key cannot be inserted there is either something foreign in the lock cylinder, one or more stuck tumblers, or the key itself could be physically damaged.

Have you tried a second key?
