if your Car/Truck Key won't turn, here is a Quick fix -UNCUT
If your key won't turn or is stuck, no matter how much you wiggle it, turn
the steering wheel, or press the brake, then you might want to try this.
But use as a last resort, at your own risk.
This is pretty common in Jeeps, at first my key wont turn in the ignition,
but if I wiggling it a little it will eventually work. I have been doing
this for over a year now. Until today, no matter how much I wiggle the key,
turn the steering wheel, press the brake, it will not turn. I'm totally
So I did some research and found out that it is the lock cylinder that has
gone bad and I need to have a local locksmith replace it at a cost of about
$120 in parts and $50 in labor. Another option is to tow it to a Jeep
dealer and pay over $900 for a entire steering column.
You can just take a hammer or rubber mallet and hit the end of the key,
this will bent the copper latch piece allowing you to start your jeep.
some ppl have asked to send me a donation for helping them out, thanks all:

Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your
vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start"
and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch
till the end.

Picking the Honda Civic Ignition
This is not for illegal purposes! This is for locksport only!
This is me picking the door lock and then the ignition switch to a 2002
Honda Civic. First I pick the ignition without the key near the sensor.
The immobilizer check fails and the engine will not start. Then I turn the
switch again with the correct key held close to the sensor to fool the
electronics. You can see the security light shut off and the engine start
like a charm.

Chrysler Gen III Minivan Ignition Switch Replacement
This wasn't the solution to my problem, but if you think you need to change
your ignition switch, this video shows you how. Notice at the end there are
some still photos showing the dash panels in various degrees of removal.
Refer to them if you think it will help give you access to the switch. I
had removed the panels on my minivan to get to the instrument cluster. Use
