You should definitely work on your english and punctuation if you expect to get help.

Try a different key if you have a spare. The key you use every day could be really worn and not pushing the tumblers inside the ignition in far enough for you to be able to turn the key.

Try turning the key while rotating the steering wheel slightly left and right to see if the if the wheel lock is activated. That is the only thing I can think of other than what is mentioned above. Is your key bent? Try a local locksmith to get another key made if you do not have a spare.

cant really comprehend what you are saying.
but gonna take a guess and you have what is called wheel lock
rotate your steering wheel while you try to turn the key. youll eventually get the key to rotate.

All due respect for your helpful mechanical contributions to this forum BUT.....

That was a pretty awful display of grammar and punctuation for someone making a case against someone else's english or immigration policy in general.
