I have a 2002 Buick Century. I can put the keys in the ignition, but cannot turn the key. The steering wheel is locked, but I and others have moved it side to side over and over with no success in unlocking it. As I said, the key will not turn at all. I don't know if it's a problem with the ignition switch or what. Please help. This is my family's only form of transportation to work, school, the market, etc.

Do you
have the same problem?

Ok. So is this a minor repair I can do at home or do I need to take it to a service center?
