Try replacing the ignition switch.

Pulling the Hazard fuse accomplishes the same thing. The problem is probably a failed microswitch on the gear change lever. The lock solenoid has power on when not in park. Take the power from the solenoid and the lock disengages and allow the key to be removed.

SOURCE: Key gets stuck in ignition

My wife's 98 Pontiac Grand Prix has the same problem. There is a manual key release under the steering column. You need to stick something thin like a pen up into the hole to release it. There are two possible problems one is the contacts on the shifter that checks to see if your in park and the other is the ignition cylinder is worn out.

If it is the contacts on your shifter, I would take your center console apart and clean the contacts on the park switch.

If it is the ignition cylinder you could try replacing it, but you need to re-key the new ignition cylinder. Therefore I recommend going to the dealer for this one.

This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

Key locks in the ignition in the ACC position. can't take key out


when you turn key to acc pos that is telling the ignition to go into a accessory mode which runs the radio,wipers etc... but it doesnt allow the ignition circuit to run, and the key in most vehicles will not be able to come out,this is a security protection so that you do not leave accessories on that will drain the battery. The ignition key should only be able to be removed in the OFF position.
