Help Ignition Problem

Hello all, so lets get to the point. On my E30 I can't get the ignition key to turn past accessories. It turns to unlock the steering wheel and turn on the radio but goes no further. Please help?

It could be the only fix is a new lock cylinder.

Thanks i think i fixed the problem. it may just be temporary and may jam up again but I just took off the ignition switch and forced the cylinder to turn. since then its been working fine but it seems too easy and too good to be true so I am expecting it to jam up again some time in the future. until then wish me luck and hope it doesn't get jammed when i stop at a rest stop in Virginia on my way to florida. lol
