Today i put my key into ignition and i couldn't turn it. Few minutes later i stepped out of my car, locked it, unlocked and then i was able to turn my key and start the car. Is it some sort of immobiliser issue? :wtf:

The immobiliser is an electronic device which stops the power getting to the parts needed for starting eg starter, injection ecu, injectors, fuel pump, etc.
The lock was probably jammed with the steering wheel.
If it happens again try turning the wheel slightly to see if it frees the lock up to allow turning of the key
