I got in my car the other day, and I tried to turn the key. Nothing happened. The key only turned almost to the first postition. If I hold the key as far as it will go the radio will come and stay on, and I'm able to honk the horn, if I turn it as far as it will go and let go, the radio will come on and go off. I've been doing some reading and I read about ignition switch problems, and even about ignition cylinders being replaced. If anyone has experienced this please help.

minor thing, but possible.....did you try turning your steering wheel while turning your key?
