Ignition Switch Problem - Stuck at first and now thinks key is still in when removed
So this morning, I had the ignition switch problem that seems like something most people have had on this forum. I did spray some WD40 and got it to turn all the way so I can start it. It turns smoothly now but...
When i remove the key, the car still thinks the key is in there so the steering wheel won't lock and can't lock the doors using the remote. I'm goign to try and remove the cylinder when I get home from work but can someone point me to the problem of the key removal and the sensor/switch that triggers this?
I've read it's some kind of hair-pin trigger but not sure if I'll have to replace the cylinder or what? Thanks in advance for the help.
