You are blending three different issues. The starter solenoid is not retracting soon enough. Chock the wheels and make sure it is in neutral before proceeding if is has a manual transmission. Using a test lamp, have someone crank it while you probe the solenoid contact to see if it getting power or just not retracting. Announce to your helper, to crank it once you have connected to the starter solenoid trigger wire. Then announce stop! If the light goes out immediately, replace starter. If it gets power after your helper lets go of the key, replace the faulty component of the steering column lock assembly, likely in the ignition area.
