Default ignition switch wont turn to start postion

I have a 2001 pt cruiser automatic transmission. the car will not start. the starter is new all the relays are good and i replaced the ignition key cylinder. i brought it to my mechanic and he said that i need to replace the steering column. i been looking for a used steering column but no luck finding one. and the dealership wants to charge $1200 for a new one. my mechanic said that the key wont go to the start postion. does anyone know what part inside the steering column would be causing the problem? Also i found a steering column for a 2002 pt cruiser the junk yard said that it was a little bit different. i was thinking i could take the part out of the 2002 steering column and replace it in my 2001 pt cruiser. unfortunaly i have no idea what mechanical part is broken. has anyone had this problem if so please help. thanks guys
