Try to put it in nutral and shift back into park again. Make sure your steering wheel is in the straight position. Sometimes the wheel will lock if it is turned. Hope this helps.

Sometimes the locking tab that holds the little button you press on the shifter breaks and doesn't allow the electrical system to see that the car is in park which

will not let you remove the key or start the car.

Pull the plastic button out just a bit or all the way off if it's broken, and that will engage the park signal and get you on your way. Ford won't take this as a safety recall. Been there before.

Good question. If it is stuck because you spilled water or something on it, turn it upside down and let it dry out. That usually works for me, but this time two keys remained stuck, and it was only water. The rest of the keys recovered.

Your factory ignition keys are embedded with a transponder that must be programed to the vehicles ignition system. It can be done by the attentive home mechanic by purchasing the keys for $80 to $100 and following the programming procedures.
