If the key will not come out of ignition, this may be related to problems with the shifter knob sticking and / or binding of the shifter bezel. Replace the shifter knob and / or shifter bezel as needed.

    Key will not come out of the ignition, car will not completely shut off - killing battery.

    Unable to remove ignition key, I removed trim around consul shifter and the consul housing and the bezel at the base of shifter was extended out past a plastic stop plate which prevented the shifter from locking into park thus preventing the ignition key from totally enjaging into its final poaition which enables it to be removed. I pushed the bezel pin in to its original position and this will suffice for a short time before the problem repeats. I have done this about 3 times in the last couple of weeks until I find the solution-hopefully I can do it myself.

    The bezel broke inside the shifter and caused the shifter knob/ button to bind. This would not allow me to remove the key from the ignition, I pulled the bezel out of the shifter and the knob released and I was able to remove the key from the ignition.

    Key stuck and will not come out. Same issue. Steering column does not lock and I don't hear the click that you normally do when turning it off. Going to shop in the morning! Wondering how much this should cost to repair.
