Default Key stuck in my cara ignition help!?

Key wont turn the rest of the way, it turns on and sorta off good, but to turn it all the way off you have to push the key in and then pull it toward you (counter clockwise) but it wont turn counter clockwise? it pushes in but doesn't turn. When its stuck like this, the radio on the car stays on until you can get it turned all the way. If you let the car get hot, by hot i mean your sweating hot, they it will come out, it usually acts up when its cold. It does this a lot. What can i do? I try pulling it in reverse and slamming it into park to see if it just is that and do it repeatedly but still nothing? help?

When you turn the key towards you (after you pushed it in) try wiggling the steering wheel (clockwise then counter-clockwise) at the same time. This trick works for some types of steering columns and could work for you.

If the car is an automatic, make sure the car is fully in parked. If the problem occurs again, try shifting the shifter back and forth then into Park "P" again and see if that works. If this isn't the problem, you may need a new ignition key tumbler because the lifters inside may be worn out.
