The problem is in the tumbler(s) inside the assembly. Before you do anything, try penetrating oil to see if that works... otherwise, the entire assembly will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: My key is stuck in
-1) The tumblers in the mechanical side of the ignition switch can wear and bend. When this happens, the key can become difficult to turn or get stuck in the ignition. Answer is....Need to replace the mechanical side of the ignition switch...prices will depend upon your location and shop of choice, but the labor time is only a couple hours....
-2) I assume that this key was cut by a dealership...but, if it wasn't, that can cause the problem and allow the key to become stuck in the ignition...Answer is.....if the key can be worked loose, then re-cut a honda genuine key and you may be fine, otherwise, you will have to replace the mechanical side of the ignition switch and that will come with a new key...
-3) If the CEL is on, the first step is to pull the codes from the computer and find out what relation they have to this problem..Any quality shop would have started there first ...Answer is....after pulling the codes from the computer, fix the other problem, (probably trans. related) and that will fix your stuck key problem...
-4) If the gear selector lights are not working or the "PARK" indicator is not highlighted with the vehicle in park, then you have a faulty transmission range switch or the trans. range switch is out of adjustment and needs to be adjusted...Answer is....need to do a component test on the transmission range switch and verify if the switch is faulty, ecm is not communicating, or if it needs to be adjusted....
---The most common answer to this problem are either #1 or #4, but without the vehicle in your presence, we are limited on what tests we can do
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
