I tried, it helped a little- I don't know why the steering wheel lock is not working also. I was wondering if the ign needs to be replaced and if so what is involved?

Here's the actual Ignition Switch.....looks as if the key tumbler is a separate fixture.......Sometimes moving the shifter or turning the steering wheel, will get the locking mechanism, out of a "Bind".

Look thru this, maybe revise the search words, for different results

A paper Repair manual would probably be your best friend!

I saw my you tube link did not come thru. Did you copy and paste it into a new tab?

If not, try it, or search as I did in You Tube
