96 S10 Blazer - Key won't come out

Heres the deal- I can't get the key out of my S10 blazer's ignition switch. Basically, they key wont turn all the way back to the off position, so it won't let the key out. Reminds me of when you try to turn off the
car and take the key out in anything other than park.
I just replaced the multifunction switch (turn signal arm, etc). Any chance this is related?
(on a side note, without realizing that it wasn't shutting OFF, I tugged at the key till it came out, and busted the lock cylinder. Replaced it, but now it's back to the way it was. Key won't come out)
HELP please?

Hi Alex, Yes somehow it is related, somewhere along the line you missed a step or two, you might not have some of the parts back together in the right order or not in right alignment in the steering column. It almost sound like the rod for the ign. switch is not in the right place as when putting it back together, the rod sometime do move out of place, you would have to redo it again and takes your time slowly when putting it back together. I am a mechanic and I had this happen before to me. Check each step before going to the next one, take your time and use your eyes and brain to see how it is put together. I hope this work out for you.

Hi Alex, it me again, the rod I talked about had to goes in the hole of the switch, if you did everything right in replace the multswitch you replaced, then the next step would be to look down to your Ign. switch on the column and make sure the rod is not out of it hole also, the rod got to fit in both holes at the end. If it is, then loosen the Ign. switch screws a bit and move the switch slighty and tighten the screws back up and retry the key to see if everything work as it should before putting the covers back on and so on.
