Default Removing key from ignition

In the last several days I suddenly cannot remove my key from the ignition of my 2006 Verona- Is this an electrical switch somewhere or a mechanical link of some type?
Any Ideas?

Thanks-

You can try to free it up with some lube..
Otherwise you will need an ignition cylinder..

i think its a electrical problem you just do one thing first you neutral the gear and then remove the battery and try to pull it definitely it will come out.

nope only when car is dead the key comes out. Ive tried everything. i just sold the piece of shit. Who wants a car that suzuki makes and cant figure out what the problem is. anybody can walk by and steal it. i usually stick to higher class cars but wanted a beater. The worst beater i have ever had. one thing after another and the car has 62k. they are pathetic. Burn them all so the world wont be contaminated with them. Best beaters are chevy 84-92. they never left me stranded or if u can afford one a lexus or any toyota you cant go wrong

I had same problem because shifter would not have tension to the left when in PARK. I had to take the shifter box apart and than made a spring that worked.

The Key would come out only if I force the shifter to the left with my right hand and pull the key with my left hand. New shifter assembly cost $280 (Canadian). But I just made my own spring form other springs that lordco auto parts store.

Most automatic transmissions I've seen have an ignition key interlock, which may or may not be mechanical - all the ones I have taken apart had a Bowden cable, but it can also be done electrically - designed to prevent the driver from removing the key if the transmission is not in Park.
