Default Key doesn't come out

I tried installing a new ignition switch in my truck and I took out the old one. Everything was good, I put the new one in and i can't get the key out. It turns on, everything works, just when I put the in off position the key doesn't come out. Any suggestions on why this is?

Hmm.. Could be a bad lock tumbler. I had the same problem with my old car, but mine also wouldn't turn back so it was stuck in the on position (that was a whole different mess). Did you do the work yourself? If so, take out the lock tumbler and test it?

That's good to hear. My problem was that the actual tumbler mechinism rusted and snapped so it wouldn't turn back to let the key out. Glad to hear you got it under control.
