2012 F150 5.0L FX2 key stuck in the ignition


Asked by Jun 27, 2016 at 03:36 AM about the 2012 Ford F-150 FX2 SuperCrew

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2012 F150 5.0L FX2 with center console shifter.  
When I shift my vehicle into park the dash light
does not indicated the vehicle's in park and I can
not remove keys even with the center console
shows in park.  I believe its some type of parking
sensor.  It's not the steering wheel as I try the trick
where you turn the wheel slightly to unlock it.

Its the center console that is not all the way into Park. Sometimes u have to play with the console shifter to get it in Park. My land cruiser does the same thing.


There's a neutral/park switch on the side of ur transmission by shift linkage, check switch or adjust if needed
