92 Ford Escort GT starting trouble

I have a 92 Escort GT, and sometimes it wont start right off, and it wont
make any cranking sound when you are trying to start it. It did that
tonight and started making a funny noise, so i shut it off, only it
wouldnt trun off. It sounded like it was trying to crank itself. It
would shut off however when it was put in gear, put when it was put back
in park, it would sound like it was trying to crank itself again. What
could this possibly be?

You have a bad/broken ignition switch.... not where the key goes but the
switch, itself, which is a separate piece connected. to the ket tumbler
by a lever
It's located under the sterring column cover

Good description, btw.
