I have a 2010 Vespa and my key will turn 360 degrees both ways but it wont turn on, it wont unlock my wheel, and wont go to the on setting. i was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what is wrong.

thank you

Is it possible the nut holding the cylinder has loosened? Does the whole cylinder turn, instead of the lock mechanism itself?
Look carefully at these possibilities. Otherwise, you'll probably be looking at replacing the entire lock mechanism.
Good Luck

The whole thing doesn't rotate, it rotates the internal parts of the ignition or key hole. I have to take it apart this weekend and look.
