used my key pad to get in and the ignition key to start this morning and the ignition is locked. The key will not turn it either is in I tried my other key..same deal. I know my fobs are acting up and I have to program them every once in a while, but this is the first time the ignition itself has not worked. The ignition chimes when the key is inserted.

Try turning your steering wheel while trying to turn the key, a few yanks should do it. Sometimes if the steering wheel locks in a funny position it can the lock the ignition up.
