Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you.

The problem is with the ignition lock cylinder assembly. It is binding up and will most likely need to be replaced. But try this: Take a small hammer and tap on the end of the key a few times. Then see if it will turn and come out. keep trying this a few times. If it will not work, then ask the dealer or a lock smith to replace the ignition lock cylinder.

I hope this information helps, and please don't forget to rate my service using the just answer star rating service.

That is how I get credit for helping you. Note that I can continue to help you even after you rate me.

Thank you!
