What part needs replaced when you can't get your key out of the ignition?

(2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer)
in Mercersburg, PA on May 23, 2012
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?
