recently my sisters 2000 xj was having windshield wiper problems, so i let her use my xj while i was fixing hers, i gave her my spare key. she gave it back to me complaining that the ignition had to be forced back and forth(not the mention the key was absolutley mangled) i forgot about it for about a week until the ignition got stuck on me. it wont go back to the off point, it stays at the first click, everything works fine but when you start it theres no spring action to help you back of the starter. is this a common problem? is there any easy fixes? websites for replacements? oh ya, i can take the keys out of the ignition at any time, i can start it with a screwdriver. lol. any help is much appreciated.

Change the ignition lock cylinder. You didn't mention what year yours is?
