First you will need to rock the steering wheel while trying to turn the key if this does not work I have had good luck releasing this problem by lightly tapping on the end of the key with a small hammer while trying to turn the key, if the switch turns by tapping the key you will need to get the key and tumbler replaced because there is a problem inside of it and it will stick again and if you can not get it to turn at all you will need to have the key and tumbler replace also.
