Key won't come out of ignition, it still cranks my car and will turn the engine off but it stays in the ACC position. Just want to know if there's a trick to get my key to turn OFF and able to pull it out of the ignition? Tired of having to take the negative battery terminal loose when I'm at work etc to avoid draining my battery.

HOLDING THE SHIFTER MAYBE ABOVE OR BELOW "PARK" SLIGHTLY

TILTING THE STEERING WHEEL DIFFERENTLY THAN IT IS, EVEN HOLDING THE LEVER AND MOVING IT FROM ONE EXTREME TO THE OTHER A FEW TIMES

THAT'S ALL I HAVE OTHER THAN SURGERY

IN THE MEAN TIME, THESE ARE CHEAP AT A AUTO PARTS STORE, SEE MY PIC

LEMME KNOW IF ANYTHING WORKED
