    "The problem is the BTSI Solenoid. (Brake Transaxle Shift Interlock
    Solenoid) This is located in the column right near the shifter. To
    remove the column, all you need is a Phillips head screwdriver. There
    are 3 screws, two near the front of the column and one in the cup holder
    for the back seat. After removing those, pry off the E Brake cover, ad
    pull it over the E-brake. Then pull up on the E-brake as high as it can
    go, and you should be able o remove the column from the back first. This
    part is a manufacturer part, so if you are able to get your hands on
    the part, then you can fix this yourself. I think the part is about 30
    bucks or so. If you get a dealership to do it, I have heard they are
    charging 200 bucks... not worth it in my opinion. Anyway, if you want a
    temporary solution to this you
    can remove the little piece of plastic on the shifter column that is
    right above the Shift Lock release. If you put a key, or other small
    hard object in there while the car is running and the brake is on, you
    can take it out of park with no problems. If you would like to e able to
    take your key out, the solution to that is (other then get the BTSI
    solenoid fixed) take the fuse out for the Clock/Radio. I stumbled on
    this fix today, as I didn’t want to drain my battery while I was waiting
    for th part to come in. Once you start the car again, and turn it off,
    you should be able to remove the key. Of course your clock and radio
    will not work until you put the fuse in again, but a small price to pay
    for peace of mind. Hope this helps!
    "
    If you have any other questions please let me know. If you find this helpful please take a moment to accept/rate my solution accordingly.
    Thank you,
    Lee

    First off I need to know what year your vehicle is. Put the park brake on, turn the key so that it just unlocks the steering
    wheel, but does NOT turn on any lights. Will the shifter move out of
    park? If yes, then it isn't the solenoid. If no then most likely it is.

Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. They also have this on column mounted shifters !

    bad battery and if i don't drive the car couple of days then it goes dead ??? It's not the battery , you have a parasitic draw on the electrical system , that is what is draining the battery . Could be the instrument cluster .Watch this video . What's giving out 13 volts or when ? With the engine running hooking a volt meter to the battery the voltage should be 13 - 14 volts , depending on the load on the electrical system.

    Key gets stuck in ignition


    My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.

    The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.

    Car will start but gear shift is locked


    follow instructions in manual for SHIFTLOCK RELEASE

    Turn off car.
    Engage Parking Break
    Take ignition key and put into shift lock release slot (near gear shift)
    Push down on key and at same time MOVE gear shift to neutral.
    Remove key, start car as normal and disengage parking break...

    good to go.... mechanic can replace/repair if this is an ongoing issue: $85 I read somewhere...but heard it's not hard to do yourself for $35 someone else wrote.

    Goodluck
