Heat the key up with a lighter and slide it in (wear a glove!).

Does the little shutter for the slot close completely?

Could be water/snow coming from above, from the window moulding.

I had to pull the locks out the doors and clean them. I used a Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner and simple green. I live on a gravel road and the fine dust gummed up the locks. After a few cycles they freed up and now work fine.
