NEED MORE INFO. Have you tried relieving the pressure on the ignition switch by turning the steering wheel slightly to relieve the pressure against the lock mechanism? Did it used to work but doesn't work now? Are you using the same key as before? If using a different key, is this one equipped with the security chip (located in the fat plastic part of the key)? If not, the car's security system is working and has disabled the ignition just like it's supposed to.

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.

Turning the steering wheel left to right rapidly while turning the key in the ignition should free up the ignition switch. If this does not rectify the problem it could be with the lever lockout or the key itself.
