I have had this happen before in a 2001 Toyota Highlander. All I did was made sure the key was in the idle position and I wiggled it around and kept turning the key back and forth a few times. It worked for me. Hope it helps.

Could be a worn key or lock cylinder. Also, on some cars, a very low or dead battery will cause the key to get stuck in the ignition. HTH. -Jim

I had this happen to my grand Am and it had done it several times before it finally just would let it out. It urn out that their ignition switch (Pontiac) where prone to fail. it seem liked the battery would always be dead and that's what the first two shops said. they charged it and it was fine for a bit and it would die again the next following week and finally i took it and the third shop tracked it to the ignition and he replaced it and no more problems. hope this helps you.

If you have automatic door locks that engage when you extract the key, it may have to do with that security feature. On ours, when we pushed the lock down after it had popped up, we were able to remove the key.
