Any chance the steering lock is not disengaging? Did you turn the steering wheel one way or the other when you got out / last time you used it? Try jiggling the steering wheel while turning the key. If that doesn't help, come back here and let us know.

I tried turning the steering wheel but it still acts like it's locked.

Hmm.. Have you tried flipping the key? Sometimes that works. You might try compressed air / canned air with the key inside the tumblers but idk really what else. Sorry.

I flipped both sets of keys over but no luck.

wish I could help. Keep looking on google and youtube and don't be too specific, look for keywords that net results closer to your year range. And you've tried cranking the steering wheel either way while gently trying the key?
