Customer Question

Can't remove key from ignition.

Customer: No problem shifting into other gears. I don't have a fob.
JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 2007 versa, basic model
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Try this. It could be that it doesn't seen the shifter fully in park.

Start the car and put it in gear and as it starts to move farward, slam it into park. Then see if the key can be removed. Give that a try and let me know what happens.
