The solenoid blew for the shifter, it is located I believe on the transmission but they vary in location depending on model. Now that you ground arced the power supply who knows what is wrong. I would suggest you try replacing the original solenoid (which is the only way you can get the shifter to shift and they key out) and if it works good then problem solved, if not then you need to trace your short that you made as well.

SOURCE: Gear shifter
The shifter cable and linkage may be getting sticky. Locate the linkage and cable on the gear selector (transmission side under hood) and spray them with some PB Blaster or WD 40.

SOURCE: key stuck, now new problem
There is a pin that goes thru the shift cable that is falling out. Above the window buttons pry the little plastic holder out remove the 2 screws take the plastic off of the sides of the console you will see a black plastic frame with holes in it I cut a larger hole between 2 of the small holes with a hack saw on the driver side. Put the car in neutral drivers seat all the way back pull on the shift button and you will see the pin pull it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. I put 598 black loctite sealant on mine and reinstall. Shift back to park if you can get the key out and the doors unlock you have the pin in the right spot and it is making both switches when in park. You can see if it is on the switches by looking thru the hole where the little holder came out. The pin sticks out about a 1/2" on each side. Good luck

Try adjusting the switch on the column. They have slots in them where the bolts go in so you can adjust them by sliding it up or down the column. Pull on the switch where the rod goes in and see if you get anything. Let me know what happens.
