Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail use a gauge and read the PSI. The ignition switch and key lock cylinder need to checked and replaced if necessary IF, you can't do it call around and ask the cost of having this work done. Until the "KEY" is corrected you can do much testing. Regards

You have destroyed the ignition cylinder and it will have to be replaced. Not a difficult job if you know how to do it. Check the net for a video. If your key does not have a chip, you can do it yourself. If it does you will have to find a locksmith who can program the two chip keys that come with the new cylinder.
