Truck worked fine last night, this morning my friend went outside to warm it up for me (tried the wrong key first, could this have locked the ignition up?) And could not get the key to turn. I have tried EVERYTHING, it is in park, tried the spare key, tried the steering wheel jiggle (wheel moves freely), I even attempted the "rubber mallet" trick all to NO AVAIL. PLEASE HELP ME! I really cannot afford a new ignition!

Spray some lubricant into the lock and try it again. Do not get agressive with it. The tumblers are very sensitive and could break.
