Wires broke on side of shifter. This part will fix it. GM #13583923 or acdelco #pt3923 around 20 bucks. It has 6 wires on it but all you have to do is cut 2 wires off that you dont need. It took me about an hour to fix this.

Key will not come out of ignition, wiring was bad, broken. Bad GM design, this is the second time this has happened-first time I paid to have it fixed and it lasted almost a year.

I attempted to repair this problem but to no avail. My key is still stuck, and my car won't come out of park without the release button being pressed. Additionally, to make it worse, my sunroof no longer works, my OnStar power light is no longer on.
The automatic transmission shifter may fail, or a wire may break near the shifter causing the ignition key to become stuck in the ignition lock cylinder.
