My 2012 Chevy Cruze will not start and the key is stuck in

Customer Question

My 2012 Chevy Cruze will not start and the key is stuck in the ignition. Started fine this morning, but when I parked the key wouldn't come out and it won't turn over
JA: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?
Customer: I can turn the steering wheel a little, and the key is fine it's not worn or damaged
JA: Are you fixing your Cruze yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: This has just happened
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: This happened once before about a month ago I was able to jump the car but this time that didn't work

Ok that didn't work. The steering wheel locks in every position but park. It's like the car is not registering it's in park

when you turn the key to the on postion does your dash light up like it wants to start?
