2001 Oldsmobile Alero.
My ignition key will go into the cylinder, but it will not turn for me to try to start it.
Any ideas of what i can do?


JK:
This sounds like the ignition cylinder is jammed and will need to be replaced. You could try to spray wd-40
and work the key in and out several times, then try to turn it. Or with key in ignition, try tapping on key with
small hammer while trying to turn key back and forth to free it up.

Play with it for a while, and it may free up enough to get it to start , but will still need to replace ignition
cylinder and then relearn the theft system. Dont be too gentle with the key in/out , turning, tapping,
usually will free up after awhile.
