my steering wheel was locked and my key wouldn't turn. On a lot of cars, typically you have to overcome the small amount of tension on the steering wheel and turn the key at the same time and everything frees up and you're good to go. Well I went to overcome the tension, and the steering column snapped. At that same time the ignition switch broke apart. I hot wired it by sticking wire into the ignition switch connector and I drove it to my brother in-laws....I replaced the steering column and ignition switch today but the car still won't start. I can't even get the dash to light up. it does start and is drivable(only by hot wire)... But I can't figure out why it won't start with the key.
