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.
