Question about 2003 Pontiac Aztek
At my old location I would come out to the car in the morning and see that someone had been in my car on numerous occasions I even saw that someone had tried to stick something in the Key section on the ignition thing.
Most likely it is ur brake pedal switch, it just behind the brake pedal arm, this switch must be triped by pushing the brake in order to shift into gear, if switch goes bad u cant shift. best of luck

SOURCE: 2005 pontiac aztek, won't shift
Modern cars have shift interlock solenoids that prevent you from taking it out of park without pressing the brake. If your brake lights work, then the switch is good and the solenoid needs to be replaced. Look in your owners manual as it will give you instructions for taking it out of park until you get this fixed. It usually involves sticking a screwdriver in from the side to push the release lever out of the way and then you take it out of park.

there is a bypass for the safety switch, unfortunately you have to remove the shift cover, the whole plastic piece. there is a white "lever" that you can push that will move the pin out of the way so you can shift it, you have to hold the piece and move the shifter at the same time. it is on the right side of the shifter base (under the plastic piece) you will see what I mean when you remove the center piece.

SOURCE: Key Stuck in ythe ingnition
There is a hole under the steering column right near the ignition switch, if the key gets stuck, stick a pen or something in the hole, you will feel the little lever move and you can remove the key.

It is the security chips in the keys. Has this car been wrecked? Was this car made in Mexico? GM had the bright Idea of creating a security system that would do exactly this, I know on cars made in Mexico (like the HHR) You can reset the power and get the key back out, but vehicle will have to be reprogrammed with the master key. This involves turning the key from off to run position without ever going past run (i.e. start position) leave key in this position for 30 minutes. Turn key back to off for 30 seconds then back to run for 30 minutes. repeat this step three times. the last time, after 3rd 30 minute period, turn key off for 30 seconds and then try to crank. Please note this only works if the original master key is being used. You can then reprogram the second key following a similar sequence, only master key that is working has to be inserted to let alarm system know that vehicle is not being stolen only that you are trying to reprogram a key. If original master key is not being used then vehicle has to be taken to the GM dealership to program keys and possible key module replacement.

while in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.
