Ignition key won't turn

My key is getting hung up in the ignition. I have tried jiggleing, WD-40, Carburetor cleaner, letting it dry and putting graphite in it. It still hangs up but eventually will turn. Is there a discussion on this subject on here somewhere or on a different website. I have tried contacting locksmiths but none want to touch it.

It could be a worn key , I deal with it at work all the time.

I might have a spare ignition switch and key available if you are interested.

Don't ghetto your car with a different key. Get a new key cut (cheap, Porsche will do it based on VIN). If that doesn't help, get a replacement ignition and have it match the original...

My car came with a seperate key for the ignition and locks Looks like the whole ignition assembly was replaced the same time other work was done, like WP and belts.
