Default key won't turn in

Hi, I hope you can help me. I am stuck because seems like the steer wheel is locked and I can't unlock it. The key wont turn in the ignition at all.

You need to turn the wheel slightly either left or right until the key turns. That is very common. I know you said the wheels is locked but it will turn slightly one way or the other.

I have 2 original keys one key will turn and start the other won't turn the ignition but will open doors and trunk.
Does the key have a resistor or something in it? I may have used the key as a jumper to make an electrical contact once.
Purchased the 2007 Accent new 07' now has 142,000 miles.
