Sounds like the ignition switch has failed AC Delco Borg Warner ans Standard motor products all manufacture them so it must be a common part that fails, about $135.00 retail

there is also a small metal pin that turns the ignition switch inside the steering column, i had this problem before you could either pull out the ignition switch and turn it with a small screwdriver or hotwire it like i did. if you choose the screwdriver method you will still need the key btw but it will eventuall grind out the ability of the ignition switch to turn to pos #3 (starter )
