Diconnect battery and wait 30 minutes, then remove steering whell and then remove clip holding lock plate, remove plate and unscrew, usually three screws and remove the turn signal sir coil assembly, then you will see a bolt that is holding the lock cylinder in, it will have 2 wires attached to it and they must be disconnected at the base of the steering column and routed up through the column, then replace parts in reverse order, do not spin the sir coil or you will have to replaqce it

sounds like the key is either worn down to where the ridges in the key wont push the tumblers inside the key lock cylinder into their proper place to move the cylinder into the starting position. Or your steering colum is locked and the wheel is moving freely as if it were not. So your solution would be to either have an expert look at it (estimated cost: 200$ low/400$high) or you can attempt to fix it yourself.
should you choose the "I'll fix it myself" method....try getting a new key made at a hardware store since keys wearout over time (ie:10years of turning that old key), this may solve the problem right away if the ridges are just worn on the key. Or the hard way, you need to get a phillips screwdriver and some jewelers tools and an 8mm or 10mm wrench/rachet+socket to disconnect the battery, then underneath the steering colum just under the ignition is a hole in the colum shroud/cover, from there you can disconnect the ignition key lock cylinder (the thing you put your key into). once you've removed the cylinder from the steering colum you should test your key again to see if you can turn the cylinder outside of the colum if you cannot then buy a new ignition key lock cylinder for about 15$-30$...problems solved.

I need to change the key switch on the steering colum and can,t get the old one out

You must remove the steering wheel and remove the signal switch to get access to the ignition lock retainer. This retainer can be a small bolt or a reccessed pin that has to be pushed to remove the lock. The key may have to be in place to help removal. If this is the case then the key should be in the" on" position.
PS The push pin may also be located at the base of the lock cylinder on the outside of the housing. Look around under the housing before getting into the steering wheel.

Want to remove the ignition lock cylinder since a broken key is stuck inside.

get a phillipshead un do about 4 screws from underneath plastic cover which hides steering colume. remove cover you will see white plug on the left hand side of ignition barrel disconect.then right hand side there will be acable get a small chissel and anti clockwise tap bolts which have no heads on them that are on top of steering colume when they are alittle bit lose use plyers its easier pull bolts out clamp will then come of and then you can pull whole ignition of. now there is 2 brass pins which hold barrel in ignition up near the key end remove and barrel will come out but it might be easier to take whole ignition to locksmith and get them to do it and get new key for around 30 bucks i did a mates about couple months ago seeya orangepeel.

Removing steering colum

if you are refering to the ignition switch, put the key in the ignition and turn it to "on".  Do not start the car.  there should be a hole on the bottom of the column below the ignition switch.  Stick a long skinny object, such as an unbent paper clip into that hole.  There is a littlle "button" that you have to depress and pull the switch out.

Car key

You should be able to give you vin number to the dealer. they can cut you a new key. As for removing the lock... you need to turn the ignition to the on position then push an 1/8" rod into the small hole in the bottom of the steering colum right under the lock assembly. After placing it in the ingition lock will easly pull out. Insert the new one in reverse order.

Put the starter in and hooked up the battery and no power to the starter it dont even turn over and the battery is fully charged

sounds like sthe ignition switch. when you turn the key to run do yhe dash lights come on? there is a rod that connects to the key switch and runs down the top of the steering colume. at the top of your colume just before the brake pedal. you should see it. that is actually the switch . to access easier take lower panel off and remove the two bolts that secure the colume. the colume will come down some to give better access. you will need it. there is a couple of small screws that hold it. also check the plug for overheating,this is common. good luck
