Tom is correct. I had same symptoms and it was the ignition switch (not ignition cylinder). Switch is about $80 at autozone and easy to put on. Unscrew 3 screws under steering collar to reveal, then get a small star socket (E4 size) at autozone, undo 2 star bolts on the 'switch' (switch is on left side of column) undo 2 wiring harnes and replace, test, and bolt it all up! Voila!
