Engine will not turn over in "Park" 1980 K5 Blazer

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is worn out. You can try jiggling the shifter around in Park while trying to start. If it will start then, you have confirmed the problem. You might even be able to adjust the position of the switch a little. It has been so long since I dealt with one, so please don't ask me how to go about it.

Cannot remove key from ignition, car is in park, steering wheel NOT locked in place can drive car and park again but keys will not come out

Try this....I know it sounds silly, but I had an old galaxy that did this same thing....

After you put the car in park, (I am guessing it is on the steering column), do NOT let the shifter go into it's "parked" position, but rather, leaving it in park, pull the shift lever toward you, but do NOT move it out of park. Kind of like you have to do when you are going to pull the shifter out of park, and into another gear, ya know? While holding the shifter in that position, NOW try to remove the keys. Did this work?

It is a Safety Switch, that some vehicles have. However, if the shifter never had the problem before, and suddenly, it is doing this, you may have a small broken part inside the steering column, that will not allow the ignition and steering components to LOCK.

Good Luck

97 mustang won't come out of park,brake lights coming on and I replaced it anyway can it be the ignition switch or is there a solinoid that releases the cable to the shifter button ? Thanks

Is the steering wheel turned? If so this would cause the shifter to stay in Park and not come out. Turn wheel as far as it will go and turn key on put foot on brake and tire. If not the neutral park swith on trans might be bad.
