Most likely if your key is worn out ,so is your ignition cylinder.You can by a new lock cylinder ,but they are expensive and cost around $100-$200.I would find a auto salvage yard,give them your v.i.n. number,production date(on sticker drivers door),make and model.See if they have a used cylinder or a complete steering column that you can remove the lock cylinder from.Make sure either one has a key that is not worn.A used column should be around $65 to $90.Good luck,hope this helps.
