Will not shift out of park without key in the shift lock release. Key would only come out of ignition by pushing shifter to the left when in park, but now the key is stuck and will not come out at all. Can not turn the car off completely, but can still drive it.
Sometimes the only way to get the key out is to take and push the shifter left into the PARK position. Even though it is all the way up, the shifter doesn't read it's in park, so will not let you take out the key until you push the shifter left.
I had the same issue in my 06. I removed shift cover/center console to find a broken spring dangling from the switch that determines position. Found a spare spring a little larger than a pen spring, used long needle-nosed pliers to attach it and viola! It's been working fine for 3 years!
key was stuck in acc position. no amount of joggling or shifting got it out. four people tried. disconnected battery, tried again to remove key next night. key came right out. reconnected battery, had it checked out, no obvious issues. no further problem with key at this point, that was a month ago.
Same problem, I crashed my car and got it up and running again, but started having trouble with the shifter, not comming out of park, now the key got stuck and still cant move the shift from park, unless I press the alternate shift and then I can drive, but I still cant bring the key out of ACC...
