Question about 2000 Cadillac DeVille
You might need to get rough with it, a friend of mine had the same problem, we got a little physical with the wheel and ignition finally turned over, try to center your steering wheel before you park to save this from happening again

I had the same problem , I tried all sorts of jiggling didn't work , a mate came over and rocked the steering wheel left to right, while trying to turn the key ( But) while trying to turn the key, keep pulling the key out of the lock by small increments . This worked for us . when it happened to ours it was like the key was going in too far . Hope that helps . Kev

Your ignition lock probably has sticky pin inside of tumbler.
Try spraying some WD40 or PB Blast into the key cylinder.

I had the same problem, I found out that there was a spring that broke off in the shifter and got jamed into the shifter's path, I removed the spring and was able to get the key out after the shifter was all the way into the parked position. I however have another problem now, when I did so the wiring harness started to smoke the next day when I went to start the car.
