This is related to a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SLE:

There have been a couple of instances where I have inserted the key
into the ignition and was unable to turn the key. I was able to remove
the key, but each time I put it back in the ignition the cylinder
would not turn.

The book says to move the steering wheel back and forth, which did not
help. I also do not understand how that would help since the ignition
key is mounted in the dash, not the steering wheel column.
Anyway I figured it was related to the transmission linkage and rocked
the car back and forth while I kept trying to turn the iginition.
It eventaully freed up and started.

Does anyone know what causes this and how can I prevent it from
happening again?
Many thanks for your help.
