    Key will insert but it will not turn... moving the steer wheel the few inches allowed back and forth will eventually allow unlocking the ignition and starting the engine. another problem that has developed is that when putting the transmission in drive... it have stayed in 1st gear and will not shift.... would this be as any result of the ignition switch problem?
