key lock on 2004 Toyota Camry

My key is stuck in the ignition. The car will start up however I am unable to turn the key all to lock to pull the key out of the ignition. The car is in park and the gear shift indicator in the dash and gear shaft shows that the car is in park. How can I get my key out?

While pressing the key release button, giggle key while trying to turn it to the lock position. If the key is worn, it can be difficult to turn in the lock cylinder. If you can get the key out, using a fresh spare key may be a good idea. If you can't get it out, you may consider driving to a shop or the dealer to see if they can help. If you have a spare key, use that to lock the doors if you need to leave the car unattended. This may also be something with the ignition switch or key interlock system but lets hope it's only the key. hope this helps!
