Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The ingnition key tumbler won't turn!! That's it.  It's locked up.  It is on a 2009 Ford Taurus.  This happens occasionally, but several tries will usually get it to turn--not this time.

Like sixfootsix says ignition is out or the key is badly worn if you have a spare key try using that.
