Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. This is not a security issue as it would not cause the key to be stuck in the ignition. What is the battery voltage at? Maybe the battery is bad, low on a charge or maybe there is a bad connection at or after the battery. Also, have you checked the fuses? Do the headlights work? What about the dome light?
