2005 Dodge Neon can't get key out

I suddenly can't get the key out of the ignition. Also happening at the same time is that I can move my shifter out of park and into any gear while stopped without pressing on the break or pressing the release button on the shifter. The car drives well and changes gears so I don't think it is the transmission

SOURCE: Car Won't Fully Shift into Park

You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.

That should take care of your problem.

SOURCE: Shifter stuck and key will not come out of ignition

You should be able to hear the clicking in the shifter and the switch--I think this is normal cause when mine is stuck in park you CANT hear it.

SOURCE: I'm having trouble moving the shifter

If you're on an incline, that will affect it. Try setting the park brake prior to shifting to park. Also there is a cable/interlok safety system that prevents shifter movement out of park without the brake pedal being depressed, that may need adjustment. Also check under the hood see if the shift selector cable is routed close to the exhaust, it could be melting. And maybe the selector cable needs adjustment.
Good luck with that and let me know if there is anything more I can help with.

Recall Reason POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH Recall Date AUG 06, 1998 Model Affected STRATUS Potential Units Affected 685000 http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/09-int/1998/dodge/stratus/index.html
Recall SummaryVEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS. THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE CABLE CONNECTING THE CONSOLE SHIFTER MECHANISM TO THE IGNITION KEY CAN CAUSE A TRAPPED KEY CONDITION WHICH CAN RESULT IN A LOW FORCE REQUIRED TO DEPRESS THE SHIFT BUTTON. A COMBINATION OF APPLYING A MIS-ADJUSTED RELEASE BUTTON WITH A LOW FORCE ATTEMPT TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK WITH THE KEY IN THE LOCKED POSITION, CAN BREAK THE CONNECTING PIN IN THE SHIFTER.

ConsequenceIF THIS HAPPENS, THE "IGNITION-PARK" INTERLOCK SYSTEM WILL BE NONFUNCTIONAL.

RemedyDEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR PROPER OPERATION OF THE SYSTEM. ANY VEHICLES THAT ARE NOT FUNCTIONAL AFTER THE INSPECTION WILL HAVE THE SHIFT MECHANISM AND CABLE REPLACED WITH A "SELF-ADJUSTING" DESIGN.

Ignition key gets stuck and car won't start


you might need to replace ignition key cylinder assy and replace current key, now, sometimes if this is a automatic transmission it might have problem with shifter interlock cable try moving shifter from park to first and back to park and try removing key again, but if key gets stuck and car won't start, does the key turns? does the engine cranks? are you using the correct key?

Can't get the key out of the ignition.


You probably need to figure out the problem with the shifter. It has to think it's securely in Park before it will release the key. Try shoving forward on the shift lever while it's in Park as you try to remove the key.
