Answers :

The tumblers inside your lock are probably bent.
If you can get the barrel out you may be able to straighten them out. But there are lots of tiny parts in there. You will need to find specific instructions for your model but from the ones I have seen in the past you need to be able to turn the key at least part way and then insert a pin in a hole that is normally hidden by the plastic covers around your steering column.

My guess is you are approaching lock smith stage.
