HI,

Ok, you dont say if the key turns back to the off position or not.

First, make sure it is all the way in park

If it doesnt turn, use a hammer and GENTLY tap around the lock cylinder as you turn the key

If it is in the off position, use a hammer and GENTLY tap around the lock cylinder as you pull the key out.

The problem is likely sticking tumblers and this works like a charm to resolve this.

Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit. Thanks
