lol bad steering lock assembly. You can swap the unit from another car if you can get a key.

Short term. Wire a fuel pump cut off switch and hide it. They may steal it, but not get very far.

your ignition is shot. just replacing the ignition cylinder should solve your problem.
same thing with a 1980 CJ7 Jeep i used to have, i never had to worry about keys though, lol.

iceblue - you don't even know what the **** you talking about....there is a difference between the steering column lock and the ignition.

the column lock doesnt have a goddamn thing to do with any key being able to turn the tumblers in an ignition. the problem is a worn ignition!

do a little reading and figure out the difference between an ignition and the steering column lock

See ^ they are one unit. That is how I referred to them. regardless the unit needs to be replaced.

And this is the ignition.

hrmm... i have the exact same problem. when i start the car. i can take out the keys and the car will still be running. also, when i try to lock the driver side door. this is what happens. i open the door, manully push the lock down to lock the door, close the door, and then i can open the door back.

it only happens for the driver side tho. the passenger side is fine. so the only way i can lock the drivers side is open the passenger side, reach over to lock the drivers door, and then lock the passenger side.

when i try to unlock the car. i can only unlock it from the passenger side.... wierd...

Haha, you have to hold the door handle up when closing the door, otherwise it will unlock.
