Been picking at the car. Got nearly everything rewired with a painless 24 circuit keyed GM kit. Been testing circuits and had zero problems till I tried the starter. Move key to on and everything works...lights, blinkers etc. Went to crank it to test starter and I didnt have enough amps ...no big deal but now the problem is the key is stuck in the ON position. Its locked in that position. I tried the unlock tab. It did nothing. Its not against the steering lock. Is there a electrical lock in the column somewhere?
Key will move to the start position and back, thats it. I removed power and it still wont turn to off.

Pulled the column and just kept messing with it. Applied good pressure. Banged on the key. Whatever was stuck freed itself. Full range of motion restored.
