Default ignition cylinder?

I parked my car to go to class tried to turn my car off and it wouldn't...played with it for a few minutes and decided to just stall and lock my car.

After class I had a few buddies push start it so I'm home...

My questions isn't how to replace my ignition cylinder (hopefully that's the right thing to do)

I want a start button for my car I'll do it if it's easier/cheaper then replacing the cylinder assuming it's the right thing to do...

The start button mod is fun, but it won't fix your issue. There is a broken pin or two in the cylinder, and it must be replaced. Unfortunately, it's not cheap.

The start button mod only works if you can turn the ignition on and off, which you can't with the broken cylinder. Sorry...
