    Key won't turn in ignition?

    EDIT : Problem solved in 14 mins ahah, thanks!

    Might be a pretty dumb question, but I took my car this afternoon and everything worked fine... 4 hours later I get in the car and the key won't even turn in the ignition... Lights come on if I turn the switch, but the key just doesn't wanna play... Tried my second set and it doesn't work either. I didn't find any switch or button under the dash... WTF did I do lol

    5 speed. I know my battery's not in great shape, I'm changing it in a day or two. The battery can lock the ignition if it's dead? I thought it would only not start

    yeah, the lock may be catching the ignition and not allowing the key to turn all of the way.
