Default 2006 ram 2500 5.7 hemi won't start

I have noticed that when I turn the key I have to turn it as far as it will go to make contact to start. Well tonight it will not do nothing. All lights come on as normal, just won't crank. This has the plain key with no chip. I thought I would turn the switch on and cross the starter to see if it would crank. It would turn over but would not start. Has anyone had this problem or any ideas where to start. Thanks for the help

It reads like the little piece between the cylinder and the ignition switch is broken. Take the ignition switch (electrical part) out and see if there is a broken metal piece inside of it.

They sell them at parts stores, called an "Igntion Actuator" Similar to this>>
