There is a small contact switch on your shifter assembly that is probably not touching. If you can get to it just put a slight bend on the metal tab so that it fully contacts. Worked for me hopefully it will work for you.

Thank you so much. 2012 Kia. Been trying everything to remove the key. Removed to positive cable from the battery, turned like starting it and turned it off and the key came right out. Some electronic ignition switch defective I guess.
