Question about 2004 Ford F150
This could be a problem with the Brake On-Off switch.
The BOO switch is located on the arm of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work it is not the BOO switch.
That would suggest the Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI) system. There is a small rubber plug under the steering column which is the shift over ride for the BTSI, if it is a center console shifter you would have to remove the trim pieces from the console.
You will need a small screw drive to use the steering column override.

Are you parked on a slope by chance, or wheels turned hard when shut off? If so, have someone rock truck forward/back while you try to get out of park.

You probably need to figure out the problem with the shifter. It has to think it's securely in Park before it will release the key. Try shoving forward on the shift lever while it's in Park as you try to remove the key.

SOURCE: my gear shifter won't move
It may be the solenoid is bad or the battery is low. on the plastic plate surrounding the gear lever you will see a screw with a star shaped design, undo this and push a biro down the hole. That will release the lock. you can undo that screw with the correct key avaliable from your local hardware store or a good sized flat bladed driver will also do it.

look on the base of the shifter near the indicator there is a little cover remove it and poke down on it with a screwdriver or anything that will fit then move it out of gear

Hello! Check the following two fuses...fuse 2...and fuse 10...Both 10A...If good...Turn the key to ON... and press the brake pedal while someone watches the brake lights...Do the brake lights come on? If they do that eliminates the brake pedal switch...Start the engine...depress the brake...Press the shift button...Do you hear a "click" when the shift button is depressed?
