My ignition key is stuck in my 1996 Isuzu Trooper. I can start the car and it goes all the way to the off position. It is just one small click from the lock position to free the key. Some folks are saying it is a Shifter Interlock Solenoid problem and some other folks are saying it is in the shifter. Do you have any ideas where the problem could be?

put the key in the ignition and turn to the "On" position. Once one of the doors is opened you have about 30 seconds (you should hear a "tick-tock" sound as it counts down) to put the key in the ignition and turn it to on. If you open the rear gate, the alarm will immediately sound (this is by design). You can buy new fob's online for $40-60 each, google how to reset them.
The problem is most likely in the key ignition itself. There is a rod that goes from the key ignition down the column to a set of switches (depending on the make, model, and year) that could jam or your switch assembly could simply be broken. The most simple thing could be that your key and key ignition is so worn that the teeth on the key simply wont align the tumblers anymore. Hope this helps.
sort of a solution. if you can get the ignition to turn to the off position there is a pin under it you can push and pull the whole thing out and start it with a screwdriver. or you can take out one screw from behind the ignition on the little black thing and you can start it with anything. i'm not sure if that will unlock the steering column though. hope this helps
