If I'm in the present time and I'm trying to open the door using the key that doesn't want to go inside the lock. Should I say:

1- The key wouldn't go in.

2- They key won't go in.


You would say “won’t”.

“Would” (which can also be used to refer to a future hypothetical, as I have done in the first sentence of this answer) is the past tense of “will” (which is present tense).
