Ignition Cylinder Stuck in Lock Position - 01 Mustang


Hello everyone, my name is Bren,
I drive a 2001 Ford Mustang V6...I went to get in my car to go to work this morning and the car would not turn over. The ignition lock is engaged and will not disengage. The car is backed up onto a driveway with an incline of about 10%.
I've tried spraying WD40 into the ignition key hole itself, tried many times pushing, pulling, prodding the steering wheel while trying to unlock the ignition.
Messed with the gear shifter...I've done about every combination you can with the ignition, gear shifter brake and steering wheel with no success. Please help, I'm about to go through the process of ripping my steering column apart....who knows what problems wait for me there. Id rather not do that. Thank you in advance!

Everyone always says starter..

There should be an unlock button inside the lower portion or the column itself.

What most likely happened though is you lock cylinder broke. I just remembered that the hole unlocking button that I remember is on my GFs G5.

Lock cylinder is bad.

Thank you for your responses, I do believe the lock cylinder is bad...I had to stay home from work today to work on this. I can follow the procedure in the book on how to remove and replace the lock cylinder...I'm about to start down this journey this morning. I'll post my results once I either get it running, or I get so frustrated because it won't work...probably the latter...be back soon!
