In allot of cases the cylinder can bind causing the key to not rotate properly in the cylinder to unlock the door.This is most common when the key cylinder is not used very often.What you can do is spray a small amount of lubricant into the key cylinder hole and let it sit for about an hour or so then try working the key in the cylinder and see if it will unlock and allow you to enter the vehicle then.If this does not work let me know.In some cases dry graphite spray lubricant works best or key cylinder lubricant that can be purchased at a local parts store.
