Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo
I would check all the linkages,from the shifter cable at the shifter,and the other end where it fastens to the transmission shift axle.Check for free play,there may be a grommet that is bad,or has worn out,of fallen off.This would cause the shifter,key cylinder,and the transmission to be out of sync with one another.If all this is fine,look for a switch on the transmission shift shaft axle to be bad,this is where the information would be sent to lock,or unlock.

Yes the whole plastic mechanism can be replaced.It definately looks like the tumbler assembly isn't turning the ignition switch off. The tumbler is a separate piece from the ignition switch. You shouldn't be able to remove the key except when it's in the off position. If the tumbler is turning in all the key positions and it still doesn't turn the engine off, then the switch portion is also bad.If the key is physically rotating to the off position and then you are taking the key out then the problem is possibly a shorted starter solonoid. (The solonoid jumps 12 volts directly to the coil, bypassing the ballast during crank. If the internal jumper sticks the situation I described will occur.)
