Cant Turn Key Past "ON" Position To "START"

35

Asked by Jan 05, 2012 at 06:06 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet C/K 10

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried starting my truck and the ignition locked up and wouldnt let me start the truck. I can put the key in the ignition and turn it to
the "ON" position but I physically can't turn the key past that to the "START" position. The truck has never done this before and
when I last drove it (the night before the problem) it showed no signs of a problem. Any sugestions?
