You will not be able to reset it with the key stuck in the ignition. Does the key turn the ignition? If it does then I suspect it is the ignition switch itself. There is a dust cap just inside the switch that doesn't wear even and when trying to pull the key out it grabs the key. If the switch will not turn then I suspect the issue is the key interlock.

Here is a guide that goes through some basic issues:

Let me know if I am missing something with this issue and we can go from there. Thanks
