Does it go into the lock position ? Will the shifter go into the park position ? Is it a automatic transmission ?
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.
There should be a hole in the bottom of plastic steering cover or a rubber cover that comes out . you can stick your finger up there an there is a button you push that will allow you to take out the key ! 2006 chevy cobalt How to fix key being stuck in the ignition2006 Impala shifter problems
There is a "park lock cable" located in the steering column that releases the shifter after the ignition switch is turned to the on position. There is also a BTSI (brake trans shift interlock) solenoid that also releases the shifter when you press on the brake pedal. One of them is not functioning, are you able to turn the steering wheel after the car is started?
have had a car stuck in park before, and some of same symptoms. on some vehicles there is an access hole with a cap that you have to pop off by the shifter column. You can over ride the lock on the column through this. Maybe it will help.
Does the shifter move? If so you may have a broken park actuating rod which requires the skills of a transmission shop to repair. If the shifter does not move then the shift cable or transmission linkage is faulty.
Transmission is in a bind, are you parked on an incline or something? If so, try rocking the car with the ignition turned on to release the shifter if and when it comes loose, if not, repair shop sounds like.
Sounds like a shifter problem. If the shifter is not completely in the park position it will not let the switch to be turned off. One thing to try is disconnect the shifter cable from the transmission and see ir the shifter will then move farther into the park position to allow the key to come out. Something is probably not allowing the lever to fully go into park not allowing the switch to move into the off position
The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.
