You could get a graphite spray from the auto parts store, hose down the inside of the lock and then work it several times to get the graphite in every bit of it. This might loosed up the lock if it is just corroded or dirty inside. If all else fails you could get new locks for the door and have them rekeyed at a locksmith for your ignition key.

Graphite is what you need to use, but very sparingly. Don't use too much. Over time it can gum up or set hard if it gets wet. Only use the dry graphite. Don't use that wet stuff! Don't use any kind of lubrication oils!
