H​I my name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. What you are describing is indicative of a faulty battery. If the battery fails, the Brake Transmission Shift interlock (BTSI) Solenoid will not release the shifter into the key off position. Therefore, the key will not come out of the ignition. If you were to jump start the vehicle with jumper cables, you'll have enough power to turn the ignition key to the off position. It sounds to me your battery has failed. Have you tried jumping the vehicle?
