Key stuck, will not come out, but car will start. Have to disconnect battery overnight and while at work/school. Also, car cuts off when at a stop.
A metal tab (which I believe to be a part of the ignition lock cylinder) broke off and fell into the lock slider which is connected to the key interlock cable.
