Re: key issue..

Who knows. Take it apart and look. Could be the ignition switch melting or the key
tumbler jaming up or your keys.

Re: key issue..

You can pull the lock cylinder out by turning the key to the on position and pushing a pin up on the bottom. The lock cyl. will pull out and you can see what part is the problem.

Re: key issue..

If it only turns 1/4 inch, the key is most likely not the problem.

Re: key issue..

If the key turns a little ways, then it's probably the linkage, ignition switch or something binding.

Re: key issue..

I would lower the column and remove the switch. If the key then turns fine, the problem is the switch. If not, it's probably the linkage.
