HELP!! Can't remove key from igntion!
2003 Honda Accord EX 4 cyl Automatic trans.
Got in my car & started it. Shifter (automatic) locked in Park. I did the "shift release procedure," no problem. In & out of gears with no problem. Til I get home. I turn off the car (ACC position), but it will not turn to the OFF position to remove the key. It will turn to other 3 positions, but not to OFF.
The only way I can get the key out is disconnect the battery. Pops right out like the day I bought it new. Shifter is no longer a problem, but this problem started right after "the shift release procedure."
Once I disconnect battery, remove key and reconnect it starts up and goes in and out of park with no problem. It's just when I go to turn it off. Do the battery thing and it's OK again.
Any suggestions on what to do or what is wrong?
