I had a problem like this - where the key would NOT go to lock when you shifted to PARK an tried to turn off the engine - I fiddled with it for a bit and finally discovered that when I put the transmission in into park I needed to pull back just a bit so that the lock cylinder would know that the vehicle is in park. I tried it several times both with and without pulling back a tad on the shifter after placing in PARK. Each time I did not pull back on the shifter it would NOT let me remove the key, EVERY time I pulled back on the shifter a tad - it would allow me to remove the key. Someone tell me why ? Adjustment ? I hope so...

1st Remove Battery cable from Battery because the only time the air bags will deploy is when the key is in the ignition. I have tilt steering and when I put the steering wheel in the up most position. I came right out. But now it seems to stick more lately.
