Key currently in ignition and won't come out or even turn to off position
When we try to start the nothing happens. We have no power and cannot remove the key or shift the shifter. According to other posts it looks like this is potentially a recall. The frustrating thing is we already had our ignition switch replaced because of a recall.

My question is, is it safe to jump start a car when the key is already turned to the first position in the ignition. We want to see if jumping will allow us to drive it to the dealership but don't want to fry anything.

Thanks in advance
