Ignition will turn but not start and also wont let shifter move

1998 jaguar XK8 Will let the ignition turn with key but there is no response
like as if battery was dead ( it's not ) and with the ignition turned it still will not allow me to move the shift lever from park. Then when turn key off I get these ding , ding sounds that I don't recall hearing befor (different sound than normal ) thinking security setting or neutral safety switch but then realized that over a 32 hour period the battery was completely discharged.
I replaced battery but that didn't change anything and then again it was dead in a day and a half. Batteries are charged now. I've also tried useing the key and locking the door and unlocking the door several times to reset things if there is anything to reset, same with the trunk. No Luck. Help.

SOURCE: 1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

SOURCE: 2003 Saturn Ignition and Security System Troubles

Sorry to say but it's probably the BCM (body control module) that's going in her car. The BCM controls everything inside your car, from the gauges, locks, daytime running lamps, ABS... and yes the security system. I have a 2003 L200 which had the same problem and I had to replace the BCM at some cost ($400-$600) depending on where you go. The L-Series Saturns seem to have a problem with their BCMs and it seems that it's pretty prevalent. Unfortunately it will only get worse as time goes on and it's not something that you can do yourself as it needs to be programmed by the dealer. You also will need to get your remotes reprogrammed as well with the new BCM. Hope this helps.

Cannot remove key from ignition


in that transmission shifter assembly, there should be a solenoid that is responsible for once the shifter is in park it releases the lock in the steering column. either its not hooked up or not adjusted properly.

Key wont come out unless you disconect the battery


Yes I have the same problem, the key won't come out of the ignition until the voltage drops to a certain level on the battery or it is unplugged, it will not start in park. Is there a relay that is affected by the loss of voltage that let's a servo go at the ignition allowing the key to be removed? I replaced the brake light switch thinking that was the case - you have to step on the brakes to remove the key.
I took out the plug on the top of the J Gate and put a screw driver there to move it to Nuetral and it starts.
