The key in the ignition suddenly will not turn. I have tried several spare keys, jiggling the steering wheel, lubricant in the lock, jiggling the shifter, etc. No luck. I know the procedure to remove the lock cylinder, but it require the key to be in the RUN position. Anyone know how to get the cylinder to turn so I can remove it?
