Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

Normally when this happens on these vehicles, one of the tumbler pins inside of the lock cylinder is not in line or is dirty.
The first step I would suggest is to spray some wd-40 inside of the key cylinder and most times this will free up the cylinder to turn, the overall fix is to replace the ignition lock cylinder.
