Question about Cars & Trucks
Door locks open,lights work etc...just key wont turn ignition
My Hundai did the same thing. Turned out that the steering wheel was in a bind. Try playing with the steering wheel and turning the key at the same time. You can also try tapping on the end of the key with a small hammer while turning the key

Is the wheel locked ?? you may find the bolt that locks it has
seized up it usualy if free to move but can jam on
perhaps the lock it worn or has something inside the barrel not allowing key syncro
so use some wd40, a good rag and give it a good wash out
half a can and pull the key in and out and etc rewash and try again this will also free any parts that are stuck up

I had something similar on my merc
but yours sounds similar.
the fact that you say the steering lock no longer works is very worrying, most times the key not going past position 1 is due to the steering lock being actuated and the pressure in it has to be released before the key will turn, you will have to go from lock to lock the find where the steering lock actuates when this happens follow my wiggle method of turning the steering wheel slightly when the steering lock is on the disengage it. ie keep trying the key whilst wiggeling the steering wheel.
hope that helps
