Ignition key problem

Having problems w/ key in the ignition of a 1994 Accord. It won’t turn like the steerwheel is locked, but the steer wheel is moveable. Am also having problems with the same key unlocking the door locks. Other keys have the same problem, except for the valet key which works just fine in the ignition. Is it the key or the ignition?

Sounds to me like the keys are worn, except for the valet key which probably never got used very often.

Does the valet key work the doors, too?
