Thanks for the info. It doesn't sound like you have the cylinder lined up correctly during installation.
I have attached a pic and the installation for you. I have also included the info on the ignition switch to ensure it is correct.
Remove turn signal switch as previously described. Turn lock cylinder to "ON" position. Remove key warning buzzer switch and lock cylinder attaching screw. Remove lock cylinder.
Turn lock cylinder to "STOP" position. Aligning lock cylinder in housing, install retaining screw. Turn lock cylinder to "ON" position. Install key warning buzzer switch. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.
