Could be a busted key switch. Your best bet is to poke around for any shorts with a multimeter and see what's happening. If it is the key switch then it'll come out easy, it's just one screw behind the key switch assembly. The top and bottom covers of the steering column have to come off first though. The key barrel itself doesn't need to come out, just the white part that is the electrical part of the key switch. That's of course if the key switch is at fault. I'd poke around with a multimeter and see what's going on first before you go ripping things apart.
