I put my car in park, and go to turn the car off in my 2011 Hyundai Sonata and it stops on the ACC and won't continue to the lock position and release my keys. How do I get them out?

That is usually caused by misalignment of the transmission shift linkage if it's a floor shift you can take the council apart and adjust itby removing just the top plate you'll see 2 sets of shift linkage rod one is for the transmission the other controls ignition lock this is a security feature to prevent you from locking the ignition while the car is in gear moving

SOURCE: Ignition key will not turn...It's

Wayneard is correct. with one hand on the ignition key try to turn the key towards start. With your other hand hold the steering wheel and turn slightly in either direction. This will take the locking pressure off the ignition cylinder. To prevent this from re-occuring be sure steering wheel is in a straight position before removing key from cylinder. Then be sure not to use steering wheel as a lifting point to get out of the car. If you do the wheel will move into a locked position, which is what you are experiencing now. Keep me posted

SOURCE: Stuck in 'park'. When I got home and put the car

See a honda dealer or remove console to get to shifter solenoid. Also adjust cable to get key out of ign. We always would pull shifter back and push it foward firmly into park to get them to release key.

Testimonial: "You are right! I finally gave it a really good push and pull left and right and it worked. It's not fixed, but at least I can get to work! Thanks!"

Hyundai sonata will noy shift out of park


Can you shift out of park if you don't start the engine ?
Often times the brake light switch is faulty or the solenoid that locks the shifter. Sometimes the shifter can be moved if the key lock is turned but not to the on position.

Have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata that is getting stuck in Park and I have to press the shift lock release to put in D everytime


No, that's wrong. The setup on the Sonata doesn't normally require messing with the shift lock release at all. I had the same problem tonight for the first time after owning the car for a year and a half, that's why I looked up this issue.
