U loosen up the selector linkage 4 the transmission so the key will return 2 center...

Sometimes... Or, the problem could be that the wheels are pushed up against something, preventing the steering wheel from unlocking. In this casem, you have to muscle the steering wheel to get the key out.

Or, the ignition switch itself, which has nylon gears that can strip and break, has gone bad. To replace it, the steering wheel and other pieces have to come off.

Well, it sounds like the chip that is in your key may have broke or got stuck on a part of the ignition. I had that problem. This happened not long after I had had to have the ignition replaced?!?
