The park switch in the shifter assy is supposed the disconnect the battery voltage to the ignition switch lock actuator, so the actuator will release and the key will go into the lock position and allowed to be removed.

It's at the bottom of the shifter assy, gaining access to it is the hardest part. Pull the #5 5amp fuse from the right hand fuse box, and see if you can get the key out. The relay is in the right rear distribution box, gearshift interlock relay.
