I had the problem with my 2000 regal 2x. They replaced the ignition, which did not work. I went up north and a friend worked at the gm dealer. He said it was the solenoid in the shifter. He replaced the shifter and guess what, it worked!! AnswerActually, I had this happen to my 94 sable and I was trying to get the key out for a while. Make sure the car is in PARK or the key won't come out.

Sounds like the starter relay or solenoid is stuck. Check the selenoid - the selenoid might be stuck closed which would cause the starter to turn because the power wouldn't be shut off from the battery. Or it may be the ignition switch is stuck in the start position.
