Are you saying you can't physically turn the key to the start position? You may have a bad ignition switch/lock cylinder...

Old post but still want to put this out there for others. My Jetta does this. Obviously needs to be replaced. Don't do it yourself or even try! Seriously go in for that. When my ignition does this, Move steering wheel up and down with the tilt. Keep trying while you do. Eventually it will go. Sometimes takes awhile.
