Key won't go into ignition.

I came back from a long trip with camper, backed TT into barn and when I tried to start truck again the key would not go into the ignition, the dust door was jammed? My turnsignals would flash and a display said to insurt key to shut off alarm, I have no alarm? Power door locks and keyless entry worked fine, not sure if some kind of anti theft system was holding dust door closed? All my windows were down and the dealer wanted it towed in, with rain on the way I had to jam a screwdriver into key hole and bend the dust stop in to get the key in, truck started and I finished everything and took the key out and its working fine, the flapper returned to normal. I am dropping it off at dealer tonight for them to look at, hopefully they will change it out without saying it looks fine. I will be keeping that screwdriver in the truck from now on. Any one else heard of this?
