Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
Maybe the key is not turning completely off. That's why it won't come out. You could spray something like WD40 in to loosen up the key. A better lube for keys is a dry lube like powdered graphite if you can find that.
Or you could try the old turn the wheel while turning the key.
I have that problem every time I leave the wheels turned.
Hope this helps.

It may be your shift selector its not going all the way in park.
you can adjust it at the transmission neutral safety switch .
loosen the cable bolt at the neutral safety switch then force it in park. with the key on but not running...
the key should be able to be removed out .
then tighten the nut back on the neutral safety switch..
fixed!! its e.z..10 minute job

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

this has happened to us as well. I found a thing online that said to hit the key with a mallet with a small amount of pressure at the same time turning the wheel of the car. It worked; unlocked the ignition, and we haven't had any problems since. Make sure when you turn the car off the wheel is straight next time and you shouldn't experience it again either.

SOURCE: The ignition key won't turn.
There is a collar just behind(towards the front of the vehicle) the keyswitch. If you take a chokehold on this collar and turn it counterclockwise, it should release your ignition. I'm assuming you're not parked on a massive grade with the wheel cut all the way to one side. If thats the case than you've only got to forcefully turn the wheel in the SAME direction of the wheels and that will release the ignition and the wheel.

SOURCE: Hello I have a 2002
Yes there is a bypass. Costs about $200.00. You should be able to put the key close enough to the cylinder to get the security to go off. I don't know what you did to get the cylinder out. but there is a chip mounted to the steering column. once the key is close enough to it it will let the car start. If you broke the chip getting the cylinder out then you have some money to put out to get it running.
