The ignition key wont turn from the lock position on my suzuki swift gti, automatic transmission. Someone said it could be something in the gearbox that needs adjusting?

Do you

Ok I got the key to turn by wiggling the steering wheel and pulling slightly. What could cause that? Is there something that needs adjusting?

You don't need to adjust anything. The reason the key won't turn is because the steering wheel is putting pressure on the locking mechanism that keeps your wheel from turning when the key is turned off.

You did the right thing. If the key won't turn just take the pressure off the steering wheel lock by pulling the steering wheel one way or another until the pressure is removed and the key can turn freely.
