Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. This is a common issue on this car. You shod have a small hole under the bottom of the steering column that you can insert a small screw driver into and press the release button to get the key out. The cause of the issue is usually the ignition switch. If the battery is fine then I would definitely suspect the ignition switch as the failure. You can also try pressing the shifter harder into park to see if it will release the key. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need further information.
