Easy temporary solution when this happens. Remove the panels below the steering colum, above your feet. You will see a rectangular box, off white in color, held on by a couple torx screws. Take out the screws and pull the box down, there is a metal pin on the other side. Push it one way to start the car, the other to shut it off. This switch is often the reason the actuator breaks. It binds up and gets hard to move, and breaks the plastic. I drove my car for a month like this, until I replaced the whole steering column with a $40 junkyard column.
Drive it like you stole it!
