Make sure that car is in the "park" position when you try to remove key. Press brake when moving from gear to the park position and make sure that even if the park is selected - that the car is actually in park.
There should also be a bypass switch that is located somewhere close to your gear selector (check manual).
Long term fix - take it either to dealer or mechanic.

My key will start the car fine but when I turn my car off the key gets stuck on auxiliary one. leaving my radio on but if I disconnect the battery it will release the key to the off position.


NOTE: may have misinterpreted the question; if I did, go to the first link as it might have some information that pertains to your situation.

This has to do with the steering lock most likely. Wiggle the wheel back and forth (gently) and (gently) try to remove the key by turning it and pulling.

If that doesn't work, try this website:
Ignition key is stuck and does not turn Inspection Service Cost...

If none of that works, try this video:

And finally, if none of that works, follow this guide:

What is the procedure to changing an keyed ignition lock?


Hi there,

Removal

Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.
Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.
Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.

Installation

Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

Hope these help.

    the actuator inside the sterring column that the lock cylinder turns is boken, this is a very complex job and is not for the home tech without a factory service manual.

    Door locks and power window


    Just did this procedure I got from coloradofans.com forums:

    "any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

    The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

    Steps to fix and it works every time.

    take door panel off driver's door
    Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
    disconnect battery cables
    connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
    This will act to short residual voltage in the system

    5 minutes later
    place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
    connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
    connect the negative cable to the battery
    then the positive
    open drivers side door
    turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
    once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work." - Coloradofans.com forums
