Then if the key is stuck you have an issue with the tumbler. The cheapest way to fix if you do not want to go to the dealership is to call a locksmith. But I recommend you call both the dealer and a locksmith and compare prices. Some locksmiths will try and charge you up to $700.00.
My wife's PT Cruiser had the same issue. I called the dealer about a tumbler and gave me a price. I called a locksmith and they would not give me a price but agreed to let them send someone over. Do not agree to this. It was my day off so did not look so scruffy like I would for work. He comes out and tells me to change out the the little pins and reprogram key would be $700.00. I laughed at him and told him straight out no programming is involved since the antenna was not being replaced.
Long story short, told him what I do and there is no way I was going to pay for reprogram since the key or antenna are not being replaced. He got caught on in a lie and replaced what I ask to replace but because it was my day off and I knew it was not the problem 100% I payed more then I should have. The button on the gear selector though it may had popped out it only did half way through to not allow the key to come out. I sprayed some WD40 on the button and it fully came out and the key came out.
If you are sure that button is 100% out then make sure you get an estimate from the dealer and locksmith and ask what the job entails so you do not get burned.
