Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
If the shifter is not in park, then the key will be stuck in the ignition slot.
So the shifter movement is the main problem.
If the engine is on, and you press the brake pedal, do the brake lights work? and are you able to move the shifter through other positions (R, N D etc..)?
