Usually you can turn the wheel really hard in one direction or the other just enough to turn the key.

thats a shift lock by the shifter , doesnt really have anything to do with the ignition

the shift lock allows you to shift into gear if the truck is dead

ive had the tumbler go bad on other vehicles go bad which wont allow you to turn the key
