Not knowing all details I'll try a guess because the key is stuck, a possibility going off that, the key cylinder has a white metal extension going into the ign switch that may have broken off preventing the switch to turn far enough to kick starter in,(turn the key dash lights go out and starter doesn't turn over) if this be the case the column would have to be partially disassembled to access.

SOURCE: Ignition will not turn

we had the same issue with ours a few weeks back, i was prepared to remove the key assembly. i started disassembling the steering column and removed all the trim, and while removing all the trim and the lighted key ring from the switch, i noticed a small pin on the side of the keysitch housing, if you put your key inot the switch and try to turn it, this pin moves in and out as the key is turned, ours wouldnt budge, or was stuck. i pressed it a few times with a small screwdriver, and sprayed it with some trusty wd40, and walla. it now works fine. would probably tak you about half hour to fix if you wanted to try what i did, if not then you may need to call a locksmith. i hope this helps, although you may have a different problem than we did.

SOURCE: What could cause a 40 amp ignition fuse to keep

There may be several issues causing you problem. One is that you have a bad connection either on the battery or on the starter or even a bad battery cable. I would suggest removing the battery cables, If it's side post a 5/16 wrench or socket. If it's a top post then it's likely to be 7/16 or 10mm. Using a terminal brushf009f91.jpg clean both the negative and positive terminals. But before reconnecting them, inspect the cables from the battery to their respective connection points. (The starter and the block) Make sure they do not have any broken insulation or dark discolorations in the insulation which represents excessive heat and a weak spot in the cable. Also check and clean the connecting points. Using a socket to remove the ground cable, once removed use a stiff wire brush to clean the surface of the block, then reconnect to the block. Then move to the starter, Using a 5/16 remove the solenoid wires and a 1/2 or 9/16 to remove the battery cable from the starter. Again use a wire brush to clean both surfaces and check the cable ends (eyelets) for a good connection. then reinstall the cables.
I am not sure how they tested your starter, however I have seen several auto parts stores use a diagnostic load machine that checks the starting system without the removal of the starter. If this was the test performed this is not an accurate test for a starter. The Starter will need to be removed, taking the positive cable loose from the battery, then remove the battery cable from the starter with a 1/2 or 9/16 generally socket and a 5/16 generally for the solenoid wire. Once the wires are removed you will have two 9/16(generally) bolts that can be removed with a socket and ratchet. Once the bolts are removed the starter will already be wanting to come out. Remove the starter and take it in to a reputable Auto parts store and ask them to perform a load test. This load test will give you the exact amp draw of the starter and solenoid and then they can tell you if it exceeds the manufactures spec.
Thanks, Dorrian
