Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

If you remove fuse 19 at the right end of the dash, can you then remove the key?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Which fuse is 19?
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 11 months ago.

There is a diagram on the fuse box cover and in your owners manual. If you have neither then I can find a fuse box diagram for you.

Ok I removed it and it still won't come out

Do you have a column or console shifter?

Console shifter
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 11 months ago.

Here is the diagram which goes with your issue.

There is a concern with the shifter, shifter control unit, or the lock solenoid. Can you access theses parts so we can do some testing with a volt ohm meter to see why the solenoid at the lock is not changing state, energizing to allow key removal.
