The key will not even turn when put in the cyclinder to start the car. I have tried my spare key as well. There was no "build up" to this. It worked fine Friday night, didn't start Saturday morning. Any input? Thanks.

I sprayed WD-40 into the lock cylinder, let it sit a couple minutes, then jiggled the key around until it started. Solution for under $5.

I've gone thru 2 ignition locks in 4 years. Due to the weight of other key hanging on your key ring this has a tendency to pull on the Ign. Lock causing it to malfuction. The last one I replaced I had the key stuck in it and could not turn it. I had to replace the brake-shift cable due to cutting it off to replace the lock cylinder.
