    It's your key cylinder. Youcan purchase one at most auto parts stores. Also, your key may be worn to a point that the cylinder will not accept the key any longer. If you have a spare try that one.

    replace lock cylinder try to get it to turn to the on position one more time and if you get it to turn use small drill bit to push in small brass lock nipple on lock cylinder and pull key at the same time if key jus wont work you will have to drill out brass nipple
