I have a 2001 Saturn L100. At the gas pump, the key would not turn in the ignition. The steering wheel is locked into place, with maybe 1 inch of play. I have tried jiggling the key and the steering wheel. I have tried jiggling and turning the steering wheel as far as it will go in each direction. I went and manually depressed the gear shifter, so I could put it into neutral to push it away from the gas pumps.
The key nor the wheel would turn even then. I am guessing that possibly the ignition switch could have went bad, but it was working perfectly fine. Maybe it could also be due to the steering being locked. Is there a way to unlock the steering wheel or any other ideas?
