I have to do this to my car sometimes to get key out hope it works for you.

2006 ford fusion key will not come out of ignition


Electronic's . Your vehicle has a couple safety system that are computer controlled . Shift interlock won't let the gear selector move from park into a gear unless you foot is pushing on the brake pedal .Brake switch is a input to the SJB - smart junction box , ford's body control module. The SJB controls a lock solenoid that will lock the gear selector . Plus has system feature that won't let the key lock an be pulled from the ignition if not in park . Problems happen that cause these not to work . Your best bet , have a qualified repair shop check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

Ignition feed fuse 16 blows when i turn on the key


Hi,
You have a 'short circuit' in the system or a bad ground somewhere. Go online and search on the Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler forums for this issue. I've read about myself but don't recall the common cause.

Key sticks in ignition


I would say your ignition cylinder is worn out. get it replaced now, while the key still works. If you wait until it stops working all together, they will charge double because it will have to be cut off of the steering column instead of easily sliding it out. I wouldnt think the lights and door locks are related, just a bad coincedence.
