The most likely cause is the shifter. The BTSI solenoid is not working properly. The shifter will have to be replaced to fix the problem.

This is what I did to get the key out of mine. Turn the key in the ignition to on but do not turn it far enough to start the vehicle, this will energize the components. Put the emergency brake on.....now take the shifter in your hand and release the pressure on it so you can move it back and forth from park to low. Now, **** it back and forth as fast as you can for about 4-5 times. Put it in park, turn the key off and see if you can remove it. Good luck, you may have to do this a few times and it may release.
