KEY WON'T TURN IN IGNITION

2004 Dodge Ram

Steering problem
2004 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 68000 miles

Parked the truck, came back and tried to start the truck. Put key in ignition and it won't turn. Tried play with the steering wheel from side to side while trying to turn the key, even did it with brake pressed. Tried the shifter and key, still nothing, just can't get the key to turn the ignition.

Weird part, the steering wheel was updside down but the tires were straight. I played with the steering where so much that it locked on me.

Also tried spare set of keys.

Any ideas?

Try lubericating the tumbler to see if that helps. They make a special grease for them. You can get it at most parts stores. Try that. If it doesn't work, chances are you will need a new tumbler.
