Sounds to me like the tumbler/switch connection got misaligned. You need to backtrack your steps.

Take the lock cylinder back out, grind down the pin that actually "locks" in place, and then put the cylinder back in. it wont ever be able to lock itself again, but its a lot cheaper than taking it to a dealership. if it is still not fixed then it must be something else. This happened to a C300 I had. dealer wanted $2,300 to fix it, but i fixed it in about a day of work.
