This is the second time in about 2 months that this has happened. The car starts and runs fine. I put it in park, go to turn it off and the key is stuck. I replaced the ignition switch the first time and it was fine for a month or so, and today it did it again. Is there a reason why my ignition switch would go bad twice in such a short period of time?

Just to add to this one so when the key doesnt turn off does the key only turn to start run and acc position?If so then you most likely have a bad micro switch at the bottom of your shifter that lets you turn the key off only in park. Let me know and I will help you figure it out.
