sounds like the locking mechimism in the ignition barrel is stuffed if you cant turn the key and have no lock. try putting the key in and wiggle the key and steering wheel while trying to turn the key. sometimes the key wont turn for me and that always works

VN's have the in built steering wheel lock.. So if the steerin wheel isnt moving the its cause you have activated that.. As azzfox said just wriggle the steering wheel tryin to turn it whilst u try turning the key at the same time...

thanks for replying guys but ive tryed wiggling the steering wheel and unlocking it when it first happened mayb i didnt do it properly but ive tryed for the past 2days trying to figure it out and its weird it just happened out of nowhere i never damage the ignition switch at all, i went to the holden dealers service place and he said it could be the ignition barrel, but i dont know i dont kinda trust them on there opinion...

take the surronund off and try wiggling the barrel itself and turn the key at the same time this may get you out of trouble but you will need a new barrel soon
