I'm wondering if a locksmith is capable of getting your ignition lock cylinder to rotate to the on/run position so the ignition lock cylinder release can be depressed to remove it ? I'm also wonderering what they would charge for that service, because I was charged $30.00 and taxes to open my door lock on my house.
