The ignition key may become stuck in the ignition lock, possibly associated with a binding shifter bezel. Our technicians tell us that if the shifter knob is sticking or the shifter bezel is binding the affected part should be replaced.

Key would not come out; shifter knob stuck; physically hit it (did not have a hammer handy) and blew in graphite. Works most to the time since, but not trust it more than a temporary fix. Now to call a good mechanic...
