ok that is the info, if the shifter is not placed into park fully it will not release the key, same as if the key is not turned it will not release the shifter, i assure you, this is the info you need. you came here for help, trust that we will get you fixed up :)
when the cable stretches after years of use a re adjustment can fix it, if not then the cable will need replaced.
the term "shift interlock" is what its called when the the key cannot be removed and turned off as well as the shifter not being able to be released without the brakes being pressed and the key in the on position.
That sounds excessive for the price, you should be able to pull up on the adjustment clip, move the shifter to the proper position and then lock the clip back down in place and it be set. let me know if you get it.
