Another thing to check is that your gearshift lever is goes fully into Park. I had this problem on a Ford Expedition. The gearshift developed some play and wouldn't always unlock the ignition.

Had the same problem with a 99 dodge van. tow truck driver put the key into the ignition and tapped it a couple of times while turning the key to freed it up and start the engine. works as long as you leave the key in the ignition so i use a second key to lock/unlock the van. hope this works for you. gary
