Hello, my name is***** for the question. The two most common causes of this is a shift lock that is out of adjustment or a failing ignition switch. Most of the time it's the ignition switch. Try pushing the shifter a little firmer to see if the key comes out. If it does then it is the shift key lock. If not then it is more than likely the switch. Please let me know if you need more help.
