Re: the key wont come out after i turn off the car
This is most commonly caused by the interlock mechanism between the shifter and the ign key cylinder, this system prevents the key from being removed until the car is in park, when it screws up you can not remove the key.

1 Check the battery,make sure its not dead
2 Check the fuel filter to see if its blocked
When you turn the key,will the engine crank?
If it does but the engine wont start, check your fuel system. It might also be a bad fuel pump.
If it doesn't crank when you turn the key,make sure the battery has a charge.
* Sometimes a car loses connection at the battery terminals. This means that you actually have to disconnect the battery and clean the connectors and the posts on the battery. Try this first.
Most Fords have a device to engage the starter called a solenoid. It's mounted up by the battery in most cases on A Ford, so look for a black and silver device that the positive lead from the battery goes to and try swapping it out. Make sure to disconnect the battery first. If the lights in the dash come on when you turn on the key, there could be another problem. It's called either a clutch switch(if the car has a manual transmission) or a Park-Neutral safety switch(if the car is an automatic.
Usually you will need to disconnect battery, wait 5 minutes, reconnect battery, turn vehicle to on position but do not try starting. Wait 15 minutes with key on. Turn off vehicle, wait one minute. Lock door, unlock door. Try starting.
Two options you can try. 1st, lock and unlock each door manually with the key including the trunk, then try to start vehicle. 2nd option, with vehicle battery, turn the ignition to the 'on' position, reconnect the battery then try to start the car.
try disconnecting the battery negative with the key in the run position..this kills the computer..then shut the key off and reconnect the negative cable, turn the key to run position and listen for the fuel pump to come on 2-3 seconds try to start..repeat this 2-3 times if still an issue.. repost findings
try removing your key fob and replacing the battery .it sounds like its a security issue and the body control has locked you out and is keeping the key too.replacing the battery in the key fob should restore all.if not you will need a body control module and has to be programmed by a dealer.
I have done this procedure for my peugeot 307, but you can give it a try for your Pug expert and let me know if it works.
Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes then after connecting the battery perform the following steps
1. Turn the Ignition switch to the ON position using your key.
2. Press the LOCK button for 10 seconds. It will set your ECU in programming mode.
3. Remove the key and wait for 10 seconds.
4. Press the buttons on the key repetedly for operation (lock und unlock doors) to synchronise the key signals.
5. Again turn the ignition on and start the engine.
6. Turn the ignition OFF
If fails in step 4, then disconnect the battery and reconnect it and wait about 10 minutes to check the remote. Some new ecu units synchronises itselfs if you disconnect the battery while in programiing mode.
