I changed the battery in my car. I didn't drive it for 7 days. I went to drive the car today and when I put the key in the ignition the key did not turn. I thought something was wrong with the chip so I went to dealership and had them cut me another key. The new key opens the door to the car but when I put it in the ignition the key does not turn.

Sounds like the ignition switch is just stuck. Here is a guide that will help with this. I would start with lubricating it as shown and then replace it if this doesn't work.
