someone told me there is a small 2mm hole that you could poke a small screwriver in at the 7 o-clock position to release the key...you could tell me if this story is true...please~

Yes, I've heard the same. Haven't tried that yet. I am able to get it out if I very quickly turn and pull out the key. It take a few times of turning the car back on and off till it works. Just curious if this is a switch problem or what?

grips the key but does not release it...isn't his one of these weirdo PATS things or is that just ford? anyhow this whole business of the key not being active but a passive element that the security system recognizes has been a thorn in these types of systems as they are laden with problems such as the battery dies and then you're trapped~

Thought it was the remote starter ...started up fine with it. Turned it off and went to start it with key and car wouldn't start and key wouldn't come out. Got it towed to shop where remote starter was installed. Pulled the fuse and put back in...key worked. Said the issue is not with the remote starter. But the key is still consistently stuck when turning off. Anti theft locking mechanism maybe?
