On some cars there is a key locking mechanism as part of the immobiliser process. In these vehicles key problems can be associated with battery faults . have a load test done on the battery as it may be failed from a bad cell or cold weather.

replace the fluid in the transmission with the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it in many cases this new synthetic fluid solves this kind of problem, also replace the fluid filter while u are at it.

hopefully that does not have tilt steering which makes the job somewhat more difficult. the same thing happened with a van i owned. there are small arms inside the steering column that move with the key to move the ignition switch.
to confirm it is broken locate the ignition switch on the column. remove it then turn the key. if the piece that normally moves that switch doesn't... than it is broken.
first unhook the battery.
about the only way to get at it is to remove the steering wheel. there are more parts behind that that have to be removed. then you will get to what is basically and end cap. remove that and slide out the parts and install the new arm(s) mine was a 2 piece.
basically you just need to bolt it back up and reinstall the key cylinder and you are good to go. hook up the battery again and you should have a working vehicle.
the tilt springs can be held together with a c clamp. it is tricky but you will see as you attempt it.

NO!!! you could possibly ruin your alternator, to stop your car from running find the air intake, and cover it with your hand , it will cause the motor to stop. Then remove battery terminal from the Neg. pole. The key should not be able to come out of the switch when car is running. Your shifter as a switch that is activated when the car is put in park or neutral to remove key.

Testimonial: "thanks you very much! I am calling the dealership in the morn and having it towed in."
a number of issues. Tcc regulator bore worn out, the infamous check ball seat it hammered badly, or/and calibration issues. I have seen all three issues on the same trans - often!
