Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the key cannot be removed then odds are it isn't turned to the lock position. If it is indeed in the lock position where it should come out but will not then the issue has to be the lock cylinder or damage to the key itself.

Odds are that isn't the case and it hasn't been turned back far enough to allow it to be removed. If the key will not turn to the lock position the most likely cause would be that the transmission isn't fully in park or there is an issue with the brake/shifter interlock. If the trans isn't fully in park it could be a cable adjustment issue, the shifter itself, an issue in the trans or something physically blocking cable movement. An interlock issue may be a problem with the shifter itself or a misadjusted/bad interlock cable.
