    hi i have a 2006 silverado and it was stolen recently, we recovered last night after only 2 days, the person who had it actually washed and put my original tire back on after fixing my flat for me:) strange huh?

    Anyway my question is this? When i got in to start it I put the key in the ignition and it would not turn, There was no damage at all to the ignition because when i left the vehicle I had lock the keys inside so whoever took had the original keys and had no reason to damage the ignition to have to start it.

    I was wondering if anyone new of a reason why the ignition would not turn?

    Try rocking the steering wheel a little to the left end right while you try to turn the ignition.

    Yes, rock the wheel slightly at the same time turning the key. Get some liquid graphite and spray
    into the lock and work the key in/out and while turning. Appears that he may have did something
    while joy riding....
