Q: What part needs replaced when you can't get your key out of the ignition? on 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
It's not the battery. Could it be the shifter assembly or a shift lock control solenoid? I can only move the key forward once I need to move it forward again to have the key come out of the ignition. GM has me confused about what parts I need. Prices vary depending on what they think I need. I know that it has to do with the shifter because I took it apart and the part on the shifter does not come up the whole way for the piece on the shifter to release the key in the ignition. Do I need to replace the solenoid or the whole shifter?
