Put a pair of vic grips on the key and pull the direction that the key comes out. Make sure that the steering wheel isn't in a binding position by turning it one way or another...it has a locking pin in it so it's not going to be able to be turned no more than about ..045 at most. If this doesn't do it, you will need to have it towed to a qualified mechanic to take the steering wheel apart to access the key switch.

2002 sunfire key stuck in the ignition (run) position, won't turn off, no gages working, and will not shift out of park. now the service and theft system lights are on


Sounds as if the ignition cylinder is bad. You will have to replace it if the key is stuck. It is a lot easier to replace with the key in the on position as that will be required to remove the cylinder. If you get the key out and then the cylinder will not turn, replacement of the cylinder will be more complicated

2001 honda crv I'm driving but can't take key out of ignition in Park could drive but key is stuck won't come out


Sounds like you need a new ignition. If its really stuck you will have to get a replacement key and a new ignition. Usually not to expensive and any competant shop can swap it for you. You also might want to check the neutral safety switch. That is the only switch that has to do with your drive park position.
