Ignition Problems...key Turns But Nothing Happens

I have a 1999 LX 470 that won't start. Unlike some other poster, my ignition key turns without any problems, except the car does not start! The steering wheel adjusts, but remains locked, and the engine does not even try to turn over. Is this a ignition switch issues or something else? Currently my vechile is in a parking lot, is there anyway to get it started? If I get a new ignition switch, is there a way to only use one key? Any help on this subject would be appreciated!!!

P.S. How difficult is it to replace a ignition switch?

I suspect the battery. First check and see if the terminals are clean and tight. Can you start it up with a jump? If it fails to jump off a good battery, it could be starter contacts (if the starter just clicks and nothing else happens, but dash lights turn on).
