I am intrigued, I used to have a similar vehicle and there was a button on the steering column that when press with ignition key in the aux position and a little pressure to take key out allowed it to turn all the way.
It is a little difficult as you have to twist it back whilst pressing the button! But it should work.
Hope this FixYa's problem?

I just did a post for this not long ago, but here we go again...
Try popping off the little round piece of plastic that is under your column. With your key in the ignition turn it back to the OFF position, or as close as you can get it, and take a small pointy object and stick it in the hole under your dash you should feel it push on something, and maybe hear a click, from there you should be able to completely turn your key to the OFF position.
I hope this helps you out.

There are no wires to your key and tumbler. All the key does is pull a rod that is connected to the ignition switch, which is at the bottom of your steering column. I suppose if there is no "chip" on your key, and you can get the steering wheel to turn, you could pull on that rod to get it running.

The ignition has an interlock that will not let you turn the key all the way to OFF until the transmission is in park.
This is done via a sensor either in the transmission itself, or on the shifter.
With the car off, step on the brake and shift from Park to Reverse, then back in to Park. You should hear a faint "click" as the interlock engages. If not, then your sensor (switch) may have failed.
