I have an 88 F150 with a stuck ignition lock cylinder. The key goes in, (not smooth entry, but it does go all the way in), but will not turn to start or accessory. I know it it supposed to be in start in order to remove and replace, but how do I get the lock cylinder out when it is stuck in the locked position?

turn the steering wheel then try it.

If the steering wheel thing doesn't work you could always try a screwdriver and turn it that way.
