Default Unable to remove Key from the iginition switch

Hi guys i'm new to the forum but, I have a 93 Bonneville Se and the Key is stuck in the ignition and i'm unable to pull it out, I have a chip on the key. I'm unable to turn the key back but i can start the card, just unable to get in out of the ignition. Any suggestions?

If you have a center console shifter, the reason is most likely the cable that detects the car being in park and allows the key to be released. Double check that you are in park by being a little aggressive putting the car into park.

Then I would suggest taking out the ashtray, the two 7mm bolts and u clip from shifter handle.. lifting center console access panel and digging further...probably pretty straight forward.
