    I posted a thread earlier about my ignition barrel being stuck on accessories and won't budge. I've tried jiggling the steering wheel and trying to turn the key but it's not working. I need my car desperately. I just lost my job and have close to know money. I was wondering if anyone could help me. I'm located in Dandenong the south east of Victoria. Please help!!

    spray some wd40 or the likes in the ignition barrel and work the key in out etc and see if you can then turn it.

    can you turn the steering wheel all the way to left or right or is it locked?
    if its locked then jack the front wheels up in the air and repeat what you are doing

    As in the other thread, you still haven't explained your problem clearly and that is why you are getting replies like the one above because he is not aware that the key turns but it doesn't move the ignition switch because the shaft of the barrel has snapped off.
    You were also given a temporary solution in your other thread.
