there is a pin that comes from the lock cylinder that goes through a hole in the switch and locks it in.normaly you have to turn key to on and tap the pin back inside the cylinder. if you cant turn to on then there is no recess for the pin to tap into.
hers what i do
take the key out
lay it on a vise or similar but lay it on a part of the cylinder not the switch
bash that pin in untill it clears the hole in the swtch
or drill it out, either way you want
the new cylinders, at least those bought from the dealer or not coded that means no wafers or springs are installed
you have to transfer your wafers and springs over to new one in the proper sequence i recomend new ones cause the old ones are worn out along with the key and you will soon if not imediatly have the same problem
just take your old and new cyl. to dealer parts dept. the guy at the counter can code it for you and cut a new key by code. it dont cost that much and its worth it

I have a 93 and had the same problem. It is your 'Lock Cylinder'. To replace it, you will have to take off the steering wheel. if you have an airbag equipped spirit, remove that first after disconnecting the battery and waiting 15+ minutes. on the right side there will be a spring loaded mechanism you need to push down th a small tool. make sure your keys are ut and its in the off position. the cylinder should pop right out. get a new lock cylinder at an auto parts store. price varies, from 15 to 80 bux. beware and test the new mechnaism a lot if you can before you pop the new cylinder in. I put a new one in and it got stuck on run. it is a nightmare to take out when in run. The new one pops in with the spring loaded mechanism fitting into the hole. wiggle the steering wheel if it doesnt set all the way down at first. Replace steering wheel and airbag. test from drivers side.
