Yes, you definitely hav a bad key cylinder and the locksmith should be able to help you solve the problem.
Our database does not have any information on removal of the key cylinder but most key cylinders requires the key to be in the ACC position and pressing/pushing of a locking pin would enable you to pull the cylinder assy out from the steering lock.
You need to remove the steering column cover.
Once you change the key, you would have to get it reprogrammed if it has immobilizer features, unless you are able to move the transponderfromt he old key to the new one or you tape the 2 keys together.
