Key Interlock Activator may be bad.... There is a relay in the fuse box that is simply a + and - that tells the car when I key is or isn't in the ignition... this wire may have shorted out, been cut or simply bad all together... it is a black and orange wire under the dash... It is attached to the bulk of wire coming up to the steering wheel...

That will stop the ignition from turning?

Could be the cylinder, I can't see any reason the key won't turn the ignition.

bump, any other ideas?? Desperate... I just think its weird that it went out all of a sudden. Feels like it does when the steering wheel is locked and key wont turn unless you move the wheel a little bit, except It wont move at all now... Wondering if it had to do with clutch or brakes cuz of them sharing the same reservoir... maybe a safety feature?
