Broken wires up by the ignition lock cylinder. You can verify this with an ohmmeter. At the base of the steering column there is a large connector that is mated together with a bolt(7mm). With it disconnected, find the two small, white wires that emerge from an orange conduit. With your ohmmeter, measure the resistance across these two wires, in all ranges(accessory is not necessary). You should have the same resistance in all. You should not have O.L, or whatever your meter displays as open circuit. With that being said, if you know, or can figure out, your keys resistance value, you can place a resistor pack of the same value across the vehicle harness side of that connector as a bypass. It would be your option.
