i have the a similar problem. before you pull the key all the way out, i just give it a little jiggle, it should click and lock the ignition. something to do with the inner tumbler thingy

You might try graphite or dry Teflon spray. Spray some into the tumbler and work the key back and forth. Don't use WD-40 or other lubricant sprays that attract dirt and dust. If that doesn't work you might have to replace the lock cylinder as per the first post in this thread. There also a post on removing the column trim and a video:
