First of all thank you so much for your donation.I want you to look at your key is it all worn down?If it is do you have a spare key that isn't all worn if so try that key. If the key is all worn down and you don't have a spare that isn't.I want you to go to the dealer and have a fresh key cut from your key code. Don't have the old worn down key copied all you will end up with is a copy of that old worn down. Let me know what you come up with.

That's understandable I was just suggesting that your key could be worn causing your cylinder not to turn. That's the first thing I look into before selling someone a new ignition cylinder and key. So is your key worn down a lot?If it doesn't look that worn we can try the next step. Remove the ignition cylinder bezel then tap lightly on the cylinder with a hammer then see if it turn's Try that a few time's and let me know if it turn's. It's stuck in the lock position correct?

Alright that's our first step if we can get the cylinder to turn it will be a lot cheaper and easier to fix. Let me know when you try it and I will be here to tell you what to do next.
