Blow out the key hole with compressed air, spray a good lube in there, not WD-40.

Use a key that is not worn. GMs wear keys quickly, you should always have an unused key as a spare and make copies by code if possible.

Replace the lock cylinder before it gets stuck again, there's a metal tab on it that moves out of place and makes it stick. It's hard to explain.

Either way it's a royal pain to take apart when the key is stuck in it, ask me how I know.
