Okay, think I might be able to help. When you stick your key it, will it not turn at all? As if it was completely stuck?

Mine happened too, and a guy I know with a Grand Prix. What the locksmith hold him to do was this: it worked for me as well. (Our ignition is on the dash area" - put the key in as usaul and then tap it in with a hammer. It breaks the column loose so it will crank. It does not do damage. I did not have a hammer with me, so I had to use the palm of my hand and jam it in. Its a pain, but it worked: hope that helps. Sounds crazy....
