Key will not turn

Replaced the ignition switch actuator and the ignition switch, put those parts on, then the tumbler. Tumbler turned just fine, once, and now it won't turn at all. Anybody had anything like this happen? It a 99 2.5l.

I had an issue after fitting a new actuator pin, but I can't find the thread I posted in so don't remember what the actual issue was. The ignition switch had been replaced a few months earlier. Whatever the issue was, It was caused by the end of the actuator pin not seating fully into the ignition switch.

Here's a recent post I put the pics in -
