Re: Cant get my key out of the ignition of my 95 Deville
Keys and Locks when worn will do this as will duplicate keys made not so perfectly. While keeping mild pressure on the key in the direction of removal, jiggle the steering wheel back and forth vigorisly. If you cannot get the shifter into park in oreder to remove the key, same deal, jiggle rapidly. Then see a lock smith
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

FIRST make sure that your shifter is all the way up into the PARK position. Then make sure that the button on the shifter is not sticking. This button operates a switch that energizes a solenoid to keep the key from returning all the way back to the OFF position. If the button is stuck in, sometimes it can be released by tapping on the shift lever. This is a VERY COMMON problem.
Below is a link to a video that explains what I am talking about here.
Ignition - Key Stuck In Ignition Switch/Won't Turn
Bulletin No.: 06-02-35-005

Key Stuck in Ignition, Key Will Not Return to Off Position, Shifter Button Won't Release in Park Position (Adjust Shifter Detent Finger)
2002-2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Customers may comment on any of the following conditions:
- The key is stuck in the ignition cylinder.
- They cannot return the key to the off position to remove the key.
- The shifter button won't release in the park position.
This condition may be caused by the detent finger shifting over time. This may result in mis-alignment and binding of the shift rod on the shift position guide.
WHERE YOUR SHIFTER IS YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE IT APART ..MAYBE THE RUBBER BOOT IS IT THE WAY,OR THE SHIFT LOCK SELINOID WHENT BAD
just press the engauge button in and then shift into reverse and then back to park. it should left the key out. just jiggle it a little bit too....if you don't wanna continue searching for part. same thing happened to me...but just jiggle the shifter...it works. my friend borrowed my car and said the key got stuck i was pissed and just jiggled the shifter....it clicked in place and the key came out!!
yes, there is a light and they may have just forgotten to plug it back in, it should be accessible from the small compartment next to the gear shift, if not, remove the surrounding console and you should be able to find it. there should be 2 lights in there. 1 for the small compartment and another for the gear shift. if it is plugged in check the globe to see if its blown. as for the "little shift interlock mechanism" i would suggest taking it back to the shop and asking them to make sure everything was fastened and tell them you can hear it rattling around. you never know, it may be the wires and plug for your gear shift light.
