Key can't be removed from ignition on a 1997 Toyota 4runner. what's the fix?

Most likely its an Ignition Switch/Cylinder issue unless you know that you have an alarm system that has the ability to lock the ignition switch. Other issues is that it could also be the Tumbler. If its stuck, best bet is to either call a locksmith and have them check it out, or have it towed to a garage that you trust.
