You can spray a graphite lock solution into the slot to see if it will free up. Don't use anything with oil, since that will just make a mess and when it dries it will cause the lock to start jamming up again. If that doesn't fix the probem, you may need to go to a mechanic, dealer or locksmith. Don't do it yourself since you'll need to remove the airbag to get to the keyswitch. BTW, make sure it's not just tension from the steering wheel. Work the wheel left and right while you're trying to turn the switch, see if that helps. Sometimes the wheel lock can keep the keyswitch from turning.

I had a problem with my 1999 silverado bacause of a faulty fuel pump it was causing my truck to cut off after running for a minute or two. After getting under the truck and listening to the fuel pump whine I was then able to determine that the pump was in need of replacement. The truck runs great now that I have replaced the pump. I didn't know what to do for my truck to get it running right so I replaced ignition coils, control modules, and even straight wired my ignition so the relay's wouldn't cause my truck not to crank properly.
