key lock or something else?

I have the same issue with the locked up key. I have searched the threads for a answer. When i have the ignition key tumbler out it turns very easily holding it in my hand with the key. When i reinstall it, it gets locked up. Am i missing something besides the key lock cylinder? I took the switch off the other side with same results. Could the part inside, that the lock cylinder turns, between the lock cylinder & switch be bad? I can stick needle nose in there & it also turns easly after its pushed in. Or does the lock cylinder just lock up when for some reason when installed? Thanks Ed.
