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

It's called The ignition actuator, it's made by dorman and costs appx $34. Look on rockauto.com or the autozone website

Thank you so much for your quick response. I bought the switch activator but haven't had a chance to install it. I did take out the one and it is broken. You saved me a lot of time and money. Great to know their are people Out their willing to take the time and help out other People. Your the man and I can't thank you enough.
