But the car will turn on..... and I rather save money then go take it to a shop... what to do?
What do you do when your key is stuck in the ignition and won't turn off? on 2000 Chevrolet Prizm
If it wont turn off, how do you turn it on? If it is running take it to a repair shop and get it fixed, or call a locksmith, not a DIY. repair! Shifter working ok? Comes out of park?

It could be a DIY repair if you know how to remove the interior trim and get to the base of the console shifter. Sounds like you need to replace the BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) solenoid. It is not recognizing park.
Or the lock cylinder is partially locking and can't be turned to the off position! Still think knowledgeable hands on help is the best way to go.
