Default 2005 ignition switch

I have a 2005 pt convertible, turbocharged engine. The key will not come out of the ignition switch unless you jiggle the shifter and steering column, turn the key on and off and maybe it will come out. I also noticed it will start in drive sometimes[ found that by accident]. Any help appreciated Thank you in advance, nicky1

You need to have the ignition switch replaced.

Sometimes the shiftinterlock cable stops releasing correctly which locks the key in the cylinder until the cable detects that the shifter is in park even though you are in park sometimes the cable can stick

This happens to me in my '05 (sort of). Sometimes when turning the key off, I can't get it to go to the position where the key will come out. I can then either push down on the brake and it will then turn, or I can shift out of Park and then back in and it will turn. But it is sporadic, and I've not tried to start it in Drive. I suspect the interlock cable.
