    problem is in the park safety interlock, try moving back and forth out of drive to park repeatedly and see if key will release.

Thats code for a bad O-2 sensor. That can be caused by antifreeze getting into the exausht. Try clearing the code and putting in a can of Sea-Foam. I have had good success with that cleaning off the sensor.

you should be able to pull key out in neutral. It sounds like a brake pedal issue not making contact with switch for shifter. Happens a lot actually. Until you can get serviced do it like a manual for now and as I stated you should be able to pull keys out. Its a button behind brake pedal. Try pusing it but leave car in park. Its usually a green and black switch. Leave car e brake on though. Safety reasons. Hope this helps

Car shuts off after starting it. chugs while driving. sometimes will shut off after starting and placing in gear. What is causing this to happen?

Mine did the same thing, I have a 2001 Grand Prix Gt and it just started doing that and to keep it running when I start it, I have to hold the gas pedal down, and it is not shifting right, I took it in today and they told me it was my transmission and they could either put a new one in it or rebuild it. To rebiuld it is about $1700 and to put a new transmission in it is about $2800.

you can get a switch for around $25.00 -to-$30.00 dollars at Autozone or advance auto part store but you need to find out if the key has to be reprogram so it will start the car ask them that either place you go wish you the best of luck give these websites a try and Michigan Man.
