Customer Question
The key wont turn...

The key wont turn in the ignition and I cannot get it out of park. I have a 2005 GMC Envoy

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

The steering wheel turns and the key is not worn out

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Envoy yourself? What have you tried so far?

It worked find yesterday morning but not last night

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have tried both sets of keys I am going to get it towed but need to get it out of gear first for them to be able to tow the car
