02 ignition switch

My ignition switch seems to have partially disassembled itself and the repair is driving my mechanic to distraction. He has reseated the actuator rod into the top end casting, replaced the rod assembly with one from another car, and is currently replacing most of the mechanical bits with parts from that donor car, a gen 3.

Turning the key will unlock the steering wheel, but then does not engage the electrical switch at all.

Anyone else have this problem? Did GM post a recall that I didn't hear about?

Make sure the alignment of the rod is correct. If misaligned it will go too far one way and not far enough the other, resulting in what you are describing.
