If the key is stuck in the ignition you will need to get it looked at by the dealer. One temporary solution is to pop off the cap next to the shifter console and you should be able to remove the key by sticking a pen in there.
light a fire cracker and put it near the point of stuckness, you may need to buy a new ignition system but atleast the key will be out

If your 300zx has no power to the entire car and the key is stuck in the ignition you have to press the emergency button located in the ignition. Simply remove the black piece from your ignition.(its a black cap)..and when removed you will see a small red button..if you see that push that and press the "push" black button, turn your key and pop it out.
This can be attributed to a couple of things. In order to remove the key you can remove the plastic piece under the ignition switch to expose a key release button. OR you can drill out the small circle in the area below the ingnition switch to access the key release button.The stuck key may be a faulty ignition switch or a bent shift lever. This causes the lever to not make the release solenoid contact. If you slammed it into park you make have bent the contact point on the control arm.Faulty ignition switches are a common failure.
There are several things that can cause a key to get stuck in the ignition. You can try turning the steering wheel a bit to the left or right to see if that allows it to release. Also, try pushing the key in a bit more and turn it to the lock position, then try pulling it out. Don't force the key or it could break off in the ignition.
First, replace the battery. Then, cycle the ignition between on and off three times. Turn the ignition key into the on position, then the off position, three times. The computer will recognize the key, reboot the computer, and release your key.
You have to have the key to that ignition to remove it. You can get a locksmith maybe. The dealership can make you a key from your vin# definitely good luck.
