I have tried to use WD-40 to no avail, had the key assembly removed key still will not turn. The steering wheel will move back and forth after using WD-40. What do I try next?

It sounds like you have a worn key or tumbler assembly. Try a different key to see if that can be the problem if not you will need to replace the ignition key tumbler. You will need to remove the steering wheel.

Here are diagrams to help you get the job done.

Check out the diagrams (below).

Please let us know what happens.
