Is your steering wheel locked? I have a 2013 Nissan versa, my steering wheel lock mechanism put the key cylinder in such a bind, I can't turn the key. If the steering wheel does lock, I have to pull hard on the steering wheel to take the tension off the key cylinder, then I can turn the key. I never lock my steering wheel, anymore and I bought this vehicle new, dealership said it was normal. lol You may have a different issue? Just a thought.

Steering wheel is locked but pulling on the steering wheel does not work to unlock the key mechanism.

I don't know your model year? It might be a mechanical issue or communication issue of some kind? At the moment, I don't know?
