2001 Honda CRV Repair Question
Why wont my car start, shift or give me back my key?
make sure the fuse is good for the brake lights as that operates the shift solenoid.
other than that, you may need a shop to verify the failure.

Try to get the shifter into Park. Lift the lever and wiggle it if if necessary. With shifter in any position other than Park would not allow you to remove the key.
There should be no problem when turning the engine off in other shift positions.
