Re: ignition switch does not shut off motor
The connection between the Lock cylinder and the Ignition switch has come apart. There is pin that holds it together where the column tilts to allow for the tilt. The bad thing is the column needs to be completely disassembled to fix it, or replace the column with one from a salvage yard. The pin that falls out is usually still inside the column if you take it apart.

WHEN YOU INSTALL NEW LOCK CYLINDER, TURN THE KEY TO THE LOCK POSITION. INSERT THE LOCK CYLINDER INTO THE HOUSING FAR ENOUGH TO CONTACT THE DRIVE SHAFT FORCE IT INWARD AND MOVE THE IGNITION SWITCH ACTUATOR ROD UP AND DOWN TO ALIGN THE COMPONENTS. WHEN THE COMPONENTS ALIGN, THE CYLINDER WILL MOVE INWARD AND THE SPRING LOADED RETAINER WILL SNAP INTO PLACE LOCKING THE LOCK CYLINDER IN THE HOUSING.
First things first. Locate the battery and disconnect it so your engine will shut off. Then i would recommend taking it to a mechanic to properly diagnose this because with it being a new car, you have the risk of breaking something or setting off the airbags if you arent a professional. But it probably is your igniton switch locked up.
your igniton key cylinder is worn or broken or need new parts and check ignition switch also does this have tilt steering could be a bent rod connects igniton switch to ignition key clyinder (where you put your key in and turn)hope this helps
your going to need to replace the igniton or the electrical switch part in the back of switch may have broke apart and jammed it,take it apart and seeif the key turns once the switch part is off the key part,(electric ignition switch is removed from the cylinder lock).
it could be a bad door switch or the key switch in the ignition, it thinks the key is in the ignition so it doesnt let you look the door it unlocks it, may need to replace the ignition or dissable the sensor in the igniton by cliping the wiring .
i just had that same prob with mine. My Solution: NEW steering collum / key switch
what was happening was the key would get stuck in the igniton and i had to give it a little tap to get it to relese from the igniton. well, by giving it those taps, it popped a little plastic lever in the collum for the igniton switch. then the car would turn on with the key, but not turn off, i had to do the same thing that you had to do to to turn it off/on.
