To be clear, this is the cylinder ignition lock we are talking about, not the ignition starter switch. If the tumblers are damaged or 'bad', the key may be able to be removed fromt the ignition lock while the car is running. Also, the key may simply not go into the ignition lock anymore. On most cars the cylinder ignition lock is a separate item and can be replaced for a moderate price. However, this is not something for a novice to work on since this is just one of many interconnected parts. Messing with a ignition system may make your vehicle unable to simply start again.
No, the ignition switch is not located in the tumbler assembly. If the key is stuck try turning the steering wheel each way while at the same time turning the key. If it will not come out then something is wrong with the assembly.
It could be a bad battery, or connection. A bad starter and or solenoid could be the problem, along with an ignition switch to name a few.
it should be defective ignition switch...................It could be anything between the ignition switch and the terminal on the starter solenoid. There may be a bad ignition switch, bad ignition fuse or a bad fuseable link.
The ignition tumblers are part of the cylinder , they are internal and are what differentiate the key cuts. They do occasionally stick and bind the ignition cylinder
It will not engage and send current to the starter. You will not hear a click or anything else if the ignition switch is bad. With your headlights on when you turn the ignition if the lights dim is it not the ignition switch but more than likely a bad starter. If the lights do not dim it is more than likely the ignition switch.

It could be just the key is worn. Try Having a new key made, BUT NOT ON A GRANDER TYPE KEY MAKER. it could be the cylinder is bad
