    The fault could be with the shifter on your 2005 Colorado. Has any coffee or soda been spilled on the shifter? There are electrical switches inside the shifter which signal when the shifter is in park and will allow the ignition lock cylinder to turn to the lock position an allow the key to be removed. You may also have a problem with the lock cylinder itself binding and not turning to the full lock position.
