Key will not turn every time. Brake pedal is pressed down but key will not turn and wheel will not release. Then without doing anything different, the key will turn with ease and car starts. I heard that there is an issue regarding the brake light switch but the brake lights come on as designed.

The brake light switch won't cause the key not to turn. The brake light switch can cause issues with the vehicle not shifting from park once the engine is running.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but have you tried different keys? You can't believe how often keys wear out and people think it is something major wrong with the vehicle. Also, have you tried to lube the tumbler?
