Please ... be specific. Does the key fit in the lock, does the key turn in the lock, does the key engage the starter and the engine won't start?

The key will go in the ignition but it won't turn. It feels a bit loose. after I put the key in you can't turn it. It's like it's locked

It could be the linkage that disables the gear selector and steering wheel what T_S_T said and also try wiggle the gear . This may be a long shot but , do you think it's possible your car was tampered with?

For some reason the keys on the versa wear out. You will need a new key cut by the key code and programmed to the vehicle.
