Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're unable to remove the key then odds are you have a shifter interlock issue. If it doesn't see the trans is in park then the key won't turn to the lock position. The issue may be with the interlock, the shifter, or the trans may not actually be going fully into park.

Did you find anything once you were able to access the shifter?
