The keyed ignition itself won't stop the lock from engaging. The lock is a spring loaded plunger in the column itself that should be retracted by the keyed ignition. There is wear somewhere in the linkage.
The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this: Remove the key from the ignition disconnect the negative battery terminal put the key back in and turn to ON exit the truck and leave door open reconnect the battery terminal get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.
If you're talking about the ignition lock/key cylinder in the column. It's going to be quite difficult due to the fact there is a rod stopping the cylinder from coming out unless it is pushed and has to be pushed when the key is on/turned to the ACC position. Now I have seen in a very few cases of the ignition switch (the electrical part) being locked up. Here are a couple of pictures but at this point like Dennis said I need more information in order to help better.
2 things either your switch is wore out and needs replaced or the cable from park to your switch is wore out and need to be replaced could be fixed easily at a small shop even shouldnt cost over a 100.00 for both to be replaced.
This truck has a switch in the shifter assembly that tells the ignition the truck is in Park or not. If the shifter doesn't hit that switch right this can happen. Also, there is a component in the ignition (a solenoid) that allows the key to be released if the Park switch is pushed. To be sure it's one of these two things, try this.... Get the key stuck, then disconnect the battery. If the key comes right out, it's either the switch or the solenoid. Good luck!
