Question about 2007 Ford Fusion I4 SEL Sedan
I read other forums and found out if you remove the ring around the shifter button it releases the key. sometimes this gets stuck and the car thinks it is still in gear so it will not allow the key to release. this worked when it happen to me!

Pull the beauty ring out from the shift knob the key should come right out its the circled ring on the shift knob jamming it up because the plastic tab is broken

It's the ring on the shifter. It keeps the car from going into park so the key cannot be removed. Pull the ring up (whatever you do - don't push it down) and then the shifter will go into park and the key will come out. Don't leave the key in there and use another key to lock it because the car is not in park and could roll. Works for a long time by just pulling that ring up but eventually it has to be replaced.

Check on the steering column to see if there is a button to push and also make sure the car is in park all of the way.

I had the same problem with my 2006 Fusion. What I did was install a new car battery.
For some reason my battery was in a weak state which affected the ignition neutral switch.
After I changed the battery and drove the car a few miles and when I stopped and placed it in Park the key came out with no problem.

Hope this helps all.... If the key is stuck (won't come out) and the column is NOT locked, on the gear shift there is a plastic sleeve. Put the gear shift in park...slide your hand below the knob and pull that sleeve up! Presto!!! it locks in park and the key comes out. I just put all the stuff i took apart back together... the other solutions may work but this is the first step to check... no tools and you know right away...

Bad switch, yeah right.. remove the sleeve around the button. I had a friend make one at a machine shop for super glued it in place not one problem since! Easy fic friend!~! Ford is making a killing off this problem!!!! LOL The other guy must be a service tech!

Either the ignition cyllinder is locked up, or your gear shifter isn't set. Play with the shifter button on your shifter and try to remove the button. Should be a plastic cap. That cap gets jammed sometimes, and this prevents you from removing your key.
