Question about 1998 Land Rover Discovery
Unable to remove key from ignition. Only able to remove when battery disconnected. Car does start. Any tips or reasons why this is happening?
If disco is automatic move the transfer lever from high to low box and back again firmly then the key will come out there is a safety feature on the autos to prevent the key being removed if the transfer box is not in either high or low correctly with most dicso;s the transfer shift lever is stiff. through lack of use .once it is pushed in properly the key will release it works every time and I have had four v8 autos
basically you cant remove the key because even though the gearbox is in park if the transfer gears are not fully home the park sensor on the gearbox thinks it is out of gear eg not in park so wont let you remove the key and leave the car out of gear in case it rolls away .Dan

Happens to me sometimes as well - If you leave the car in park, turn the key all the way on (without actually starting the car), shift in to drive, then back in to park, and try again. Sometimes I have to do that 2-3 times, but eventually the key comes out. Let me know if that works.
