The pnp switch is short for Park/Neutral Switch. Its pretty much the middle man between the ignition switch and the starter. It only allows the current from the ignition switch to reach the starter if the vehicle is in park or neutral. Its usually connected to the shifter. Allow me to correct myself on the first answer. If the shifter is on the column it will be located in the column region. If shifters on the floor its under the vehicle and connected to the shifter.
No, you do not.
Make sure the shifter handle is fully engaged in park. On my '92 caravan, I have to push the shifter up and forward again after putting it in park, to make sure it's fully in park. My ignition switch won't turn off all the way or door locks work until I do that. Also, you might have a loose shifter mechanism...jiggle it while turning the ignition switch at the same time.
sure it can
You must replace the ignition switch if you cannot get the key out.
Did you activate the anti-theft system when you changed the ignition switch? If it has been activated you will need to have it reprogrammed at the dealer. good luck!
remove the plastic ring around the button you push on the shifter to switch gears, the car thinks it's still in drive and won't release the key. The ring removal will release it, but the actual fix involves replacing the whole shifter...
Try putting the shifter in neutral and try it. If not pull the shifter in to park, but pull it into park and turn key.
In order for this car to shift out of Park, the ignition switch needs to be turned to the On position and the button on the shifter handle (under the thumb) needs to be pressed. If the car is on and the button is pressed, remote the shifter handle first (pulling the u-clip out of the shifter handle in the notch facing the dashboard) and check for mechanical problems. If the rod in the center of the shifter is functioning properly, you will need to check the connection within the ignition switch and then move on to transmission issues.
Check the neutral safety switch on the shifter. If you place the shifter into neutral or push the shifter harder into the park position, this may change the switch position to allow it to start. There is a recall on the grand Cherokees for this switch.AnswerIgnition switch or starter.
You cannot fix it, just replace it.

Done correctly, indefinitely.
The ignition switch on a 1996 Mercury Tracer might lock up and release only when the shifter is removed from park and then put in the park position again because the sensor is getting worn. This sensor lets the ignition know that the car is in park and it is safe to remove the key. Check the shift position sensor.
Depending on the type and model of motorcycle, the ignition switch can be easy to change. Many bikes have a ring that rotates like a nut to remove the switch, then the wiring plugs on.
Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out and you can remove the wiring harness from the end of the ignition switch. Reverse the process to install your new ignition switch.
You will need to remove the ignition switch retaining ring. Pull the ignition switch barrel out. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the ignition switch. Reverse the process to install the new ignition switch.
I cannot give you a detailed answer, but I can tell you the neutral safety switch is in the steering column, associated with the shifter, and is not in the transmission.
