This can happen in the older GM trucks and cars (the ones with 2 different keys, square for ignition and round for the door). There are a couple of different ways this can happen. Either the gear at the back of the lock has broken (or come loose) or there is a part further down in the steering column that also can break that would cause this symptom. Some call it the "rack" because the dealers replacement part is called a "rack kit".

On a 2001 Rodeo the key wont come out of the ignition What can you do?

I've had to resolve this issue by turning the steering wheel and playing with the key. You can try to start the truck and then quickly turn it off to get the key to come out as well. My problem ended up being a shift solenoid that was sticking and telling the truck that it was still in gear.
