Question Question on 97 Ranger Key Lock Cylinder

I went to start my 97 Ranger yesterday and for some reason the Key lock Cylinder is stuck in the lock position. You can put the key in an it will not turn? Read the section in the Hayne's manual that says to put the key switch in the run position and use a peice of wire/small screwdriver to depress the retainer and remove it. The problem is that I can't get it to budge. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Larry lstill@aol.com

Try to turn the steering wheel a little bit one way and/or the other while turning the key.
