HELP! Key won't fit lock!

Just tried to unlock the deadbolt on the rear door of my 2012 Kodiak 263RLSL and the key will not go all the way in the lock. Yes, it is the correct key and it works in the door latch lock just fine. Tried WD40 at dealers recommendation but no luck. Anyone else out there with ideas?

Got'er fixed! Amazing what a locksmith with the right tools can do! Word to the wise; when extracting the key from the deadbolt, make sure the cylinder is back to the vertical position. In theory the key can't come out while in the horizontal locked position but that is just theory! It can and if it does you cannot get the key back in. Cheap lesson.
