      Your thread title should be a little more descriptive. Have you tried wiggling it a bit? Sometimes the tumblers go bad and eventually just wont turn past key pos 1.

      ...to name just a few.

      Entirely possible it’s the shift interlock (can test by holding your hand over the front part of the shifter cover with key in POS1, press on the brake pedal and feel for the solenoid movement) but I’m betting on a failed lock cylinder, given the MY of the car. Replaced the cylinder in the ’05 back in 2014, the ’08 cylinder was replaced before I bought the car in 2015.

      Others can add to the post. There is a procedure to remove the now likely broke piece within the cylinder, I did that to get things working while my new cylinder was on order.

      Good luck

      We have wiggled it a lot. Turning steering wheel and not turning. Spraying WD40. Took covers off steering column. Did not see any broken parts. Have read almost every post on google. Now going to get some graphite.
      Thank so much for response. We are new to this.

      If the cylinder is not turning due to the commonly failed broken piece, you'll need to remove the bottom plate of the cylinder to get to it. With column covers off, can try to turn the key while you tap the cylinder bottom plate, that may allow the the key to turn as might also tapping the back of the key lightly while you try and turn it. But once this scenario occurs, from my own personal experience, having first validated that the interlock solenoid is functioning properly, the internals of the lock cylinder (pins and/or guillotine-steering wheel lock) are commonly the culprit.

      R&R for the cylinder itself is pretty straight forward, can be done at home with time and patience and something that can make slots in the security screws.

      A number of OE internet resellers can sell you a cylinder cut to your VIN once proof of ownership has been established. Think maybe I had to pay $250 or so when I ordered it a few years back. Many come with a precut dummy key (used for validation of the cylinder), this key can be placed somewhere on the car for emergency use (will open doors and turn the car on but will not start as there's no transponder).

      If its just the internal piece at fault, you can cut/pry the bottom cover and remove the failed piece (it'll likely be loose and drop out once the cover is removed). That will possibly get you back on the road.

      Good luck, let us know how this works out.
