I had this problem- it is a simple fix. The problem is at the base of the gearshift. There is a small electric metallic contact that releases the key when you shift into park. that contact can become gummed up and not work properly causing the car to not release your key. (the contact does not engage and the car thinks you are not in park...) If you unscrew the center console and pull it off over the gearshift you will see the contact on the right hand side at the base of the shift lever. I used a little WD-40 to clean it and voila! No problems since. It took me 10 minutes and 2 squirts of WD-40.
