Default 90 accord ignition switch problem

the problem is that it doesnt have power to anything but the radio in the on position. if you turn the key slightly toward the start position itll turn everything on like normal and if you further turn it it will start the car, but if you let go of the key and let it go back to the on position it turns off and goes back to acc since only the radio works. according to my repair manual the switch is removable from the lock cylinder which is where the key goes. where should i start checking to find the problem?

thanks folks
