Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It was running fine. I parked it and a few hours later went to get in it and the key just wouldn't turn at all and the wheel was locked all of a sudden as well.

Violently turn your steering wheel left to right, and at the same time be jiggling the key. My buddies 4x4 used to do the same thing every so often. If that doesn't work, tap the back of the key with the heavy plastic end of a screw driver. You may have some stuck tumblers. If you get the key out, buy some lock graphite and squirt it in your ignition.
