Having problems with your 2001 Mercury Sable ?
2001 Sable Ignition - Key will NOT turn the cylinder.
\015 The other night, my girlfriend came home and shut the car off in he driveway. The next morning I wasn't able to turn the key in the ignition - at all. I have AstroStart and that still works, but is utterly useless if I can't turn the key. Any ideas? I'm thinking there's a wafer that broke in the lock cylinder, but I can't seem to even get the cylinder out of the lock to even inspect it. I've seen instructions for how to remove the cylinder by turning the key to the run position and pushing the release pin on the bottom of the cylinder. However, I am not able to do this considering the key won't turn the cylinder in the first place.\015
Try turning the steering wheel with your left handle(to get pressure off of the lock) while trying to turn the key with your right hand.
