2005 EXL: when cold, below 40 or so, the key inserts without resistance, but no crank and no drive selector lights (D to 2) (but all the dash lights illuminate) and key is unable to move back to initial position and A/T shifter is locked. As it warms up, the drive selector lights begin to flicker irregularily and the car can now be started, but the key is still stuck. When it is warm, everything works as normal. I've been pre-heating it with a heat gun aimed up at the dash from the driver-side floor. On a 25 degree day, that takes 20 minutes or so.
Not hearing the brake switch unlock the column (even after replacement and adjustment).
Is there a failed servo that would be affected by temp, or is the ignition faulty?
And help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Temperature related issues could be caused by a poor electrical contacts which contract when cold and expand when warm. Have you checked the wiring harnesses connectors for any bad connections?

It could be. But checking wire harness contacts at the steering column is relatively easy and free.

Thanks for the ideas. What connection or circuit would be linked to the steering lock, ignition, brake pedal switch, and the shift selector lights?
