I just has the same problem occur in my '03 S-Type. I figured out that the issue has to with the keys themselves. I have two keys for the car, and for whatever reason the car now has decided that if it was locked with one key, then that same key has to be the one to unlock it. As soon as I tried using the last key used, she started right up without any issue. Excellent news for the car, kind of a bummer that I now have to use only one key though.

Cannot remove key from ignition

in that transmission shifter assembly, there should be a solenoid that is responsible for once the shifter is in park it releases the lock in the steering column. either its not hooked up or not adjusted properly.

Steering lock will not release

Steering lock is a part of the security system in the car , and has to open .. First check the fuses . If fuses are ok , and you had any work done in that area , then check the pins for the steering lock. inally replace the lock

most probably you need to replace the steering lock , as it is a part of the security in the car and unless it opens , it will not start
