Need help! The key is out the ignition can
put key back in but can't turn ignition right

ignition in the accessory position.

Try to turn the steering wheel in the same direction the wheels are turned. It may have torque-locked. Not sure if removing the key while it was in accessory was the best idea though.

Tried turning the wheel, but it did not help.

Tap the end of the key into the ignition hard but not too much force then you pretty much just have to force the key to the right. Same thing happens to me
