Try spraying some WD40 in and around the ignition switch may help unstick ignition switch.

Try using some graphite or and anti seize product. And it that doesn't work I would take it to a Dealer near by. Im sure that it has a recall for that.

make sure you put the product on the key if the key can be removed
