i have always turned the key back towards me while turning the wheel. my fofo only did it to me once or twice, but my splash did it to me on a daily basis! very hard to impress the ladies when u can't even start the car lol!

try tapping the key with a light to medium force until it turns. And then get the ignition cly replaced asap. Any local locksmith should be able to do it for you for around $100 or less.

wiggle the key as you wiggle the wheel.

If you mean the steering wheel itself and not the ignition cylinder, then turning motor off with wheels hard cut one way and power steering under heavy load does it. You need to figure out which way wheel was last turned when key cut off and pull wheel hard same way a little bit while turning key. It'll come right loose. Nothing personal but women do that all the time, don't ask how I know...........
