Ignition switch wouldn't lock - couldn't remove key. Shifter assembly release at ignition column (solenoid?) slips out of position.
Locksmith located problem, couldn't fix -- not a locksmith issue.
Problem started when car was towed to shop for repair -- shifter wouldn't release to move out of park. Shifter release was fixed, but now ignition won't lock.
The brake light pedal switch also needed a new spacer/shim -- lights always on.
Are these problems related, and can I just disable the release mechanism?
