Angry Key Stuck and unable to remove out

Folks,
I have weird situation whereby recently my 2013 CRZ ignition switch does not turn from (1 to 0) and I cannot remove the key. In the manual, it says the gear should be on P (parking) but i tried many times, but it was still the same. To overcome, I need to open the door and pull the key from outside but with intermittent success rate. I changed to spare key but same issue occured. Please shed some lights if anyone has similar issues. Thanks

When in "park", does your shifter button pop all the way back up? Sounds like your shifter lever may not be going all the way "home." Any modification to the shifter lever or shift knob? Any issues starting the car or shifting out of park?

also, is this a genuine OEM key that you are using?

without knowing anything else all we can do is guess.

but similar issues in the accord forums

There is both a mechanical and an electrical interlock. You may have a bad wire to the solenoid that lets you remove the key. Have you tried jiggling the key? Time to have some professional trouble shooting done before you can't remove the key at all.

Its the Sensor..

Thanks Guys, I was told by local mechanics that its a sensor located at "P" gear issue. If I keep re triggering the gear to "P", it will finally unlock!

Loose wire or bad sensor both things you can repair. In some cases it is what is called a Neutral Safety switch. There is also a little cover you can remove to one side of the shift that you can possibly manually trigger the release.

I was going to guess you turned the key off with the wheel turned to the left or right. This will sometimes cause it to be hard to remove the key.

Probably a bad neutral switch in the shifter assembly.
