so i was trying to move my car from the street to up my driveway last night and the car kept spinning on the ice so i tried to bring it back down and park on the street, my mom was yelling at me saying i was about to crash so i turned the car off, mind you it’s pitch black inside and i can bearly see the dash, after talking to her i accidentally put the circle key back in and turned it then took it out and put the squat ignition key in and it said [HOT] so i tried figuring it out. i checked the coolant and filled it with distilled water but the car kept eating it even though it was off (might be a leak), i could not get the car to start and after taking the key out i was still able to turn the part where you put the key in and it was still swaying hot, the battery works but i didn’t hear a chk chk chk chk noise from the starter, the car wasn’t even on for five minutes, by using the floor shifter i tried starting the car in drive park neutral and everything, the car was switched over from colombia shift to floor shift but the column can still rotates around and shows on the dash it’s moving through the different gears but i don’t think it actually changes the gears, i ended up turning the column all the way to the left and tried putting in the key and it fit ALL THE WAY NOW, i turned the key and the started and i hurried and put it on the street. was my problem just the column shifter needing to be in park for the key to fit all the way in and start? or was it actually my starter failing, if you made it this far i honestly thank you for reading this.
