you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone also.one more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing fixya.com!

SOURCE: My car won't start I
The key barrel is defective and it will haver to be replaced. Since you will have to force it to make it turn long enough to get it out you should take the car to a repair shop - the risk of breaking something is too great for you to do it.

SOURCE: Replaced stock bcm with used.
A used body control can be used in a vehicle other than the vehicle it was installed in. the body control module when first installed is programmed with the vehicle vin number. the vin number can not be changed was it was written to the BCM. the oprions can be always change in the BCM but not the VIN number. basically the used bcm you have installed has the vin number from the vehicle was installed in, now the vin number in the used BCM doesnt match all the other control modules

SOURCE: won't turn over when trying
In my experience you have a bad solenoid but I am not sure by your simple explanation of the problem. If it won't turn over by key but will turn over when jumped but won't start I would need to know if you have spark when it does turn over. This would mean the two are most likely not related.

First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.
