Yours is the first "no-turn" situation I've heard of. Everyone else's ignition key problems seems to be the dreaded "spinning key syndrome".
I think your only option is to pull it apart and find out what's actually got the tumbler locked.
By the way, your remote does NOT lock the ignition tumbler. Pushing the remote button has no effect on the tumbler.
