Default 1998 S10 Ignition Switch

I turn the key and absolutely nothing happens. The starter and battery are new. Everything worked fine and then one day I turn the key and it acts as though it is not in PARK. Some research says it's the ignition switch wiring assembly that is attached to the steering column. The parts available do not match what is attached to the column. The truck shows 2 wiring assemblies. One to the turn signal arm and the other over near the key. The replacement parts only show the assembly going to the key side. Any thoughts out there?

I've attached an image of the part that is available. The truck shows two wiring assemblies coming from the large block.

2.2 or 4.3?? i know the 2.2 it's not connected right where the key is. there's a linkage that runs down a bit on the column and connects to the switch.
