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: i have a 1999 chevy
Read up on this link. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/ But replacing steering column, you have probably swapped out the ignition that is part of the cars anti theft system. The passlock has immobilized the starter. Read that link all the way thru. Way too much to type. Tons of info and DO IT YOURSELF solutions to fix the security too.
