It sounds like you have damaged the exciter ring around the ignition lock. This is an integral component of the Passlock system and the car will not run without it operational. You will likely need the dealer for this one because the Passlock system will have to go through a relearn and that requires the use of a factory scan tool after the component is replaced.
