Many times the reason your key will have problems to turn is because your key has just gotten worn out. Making a key copy will not fix the problem. What we recommend you do is to have a locksmith cut you a new key by key code. The second reason why the key won’t turn is that one of the parts in the ignition switch is stuck and we recommend you have a locksmith rekey your ignition cylinder.
