move the steering wheel a little if it's trying to 'return " to center it may pinch the ignition

make sure it's in park , push the gear selector a little ,try neutral but I guess the key won't even turn , though , might be a solenoid in the selector not throwing the signal

No the key turns all the way but it doesnt fo anything i also tried the spare key just in case that was a key fault still nothing. Its very mysterious as car was working fine

the cars they make today are full of possibilities when they don't run , no one here can know exactly what's going in with your car and if you''re not any kind of mechanic it makes it harder , for even the simplest thing there are certain tools you need for testing
