killarowa, yes I have tried wiggling the key as well as turning the wheel from side to side with no luck. I believe that acts as a release for the key locking mechanism and have read that you can feel it engage/disengage under normal circumstances.

orangebalt13, as stated; I have removed the access panel on the bottom of the steering wheel column but can not find the plunger. I have tried using a flash light with no luck. Thank you for stating that is white, I have been trying to find anything more descriptive than "it's a plunger". I can not even see anything white, only black plastic and metallic parts.
