Its a simple fix - you just need to put your right hand underneath the dash, under the ignition switch with the stuck key, and feel around for the stiff transmission-shift-lock cable, and just giggle it about a bit. Try all directions, don't be aggressive with it; and eventually you will be able to turn the key to the LOCK position. Good luck
#7 of 9 Same problem..

Hi, I am having the same problem with my '98. The key sticks, and unless the cable is in the correct point, I can't start the car, even if it's in Neutral. For about a week, the car would start everytime, only the key wouldn't come out. Now I have to jiggle the shifter while turning the key until it starts. Is there some kind of switch at the steering-column end of the cable that could be bad?

my key does the same thing. all i do is hold down the brake and then jerk it out of park. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. then the key will move. you can try to remove the shifter and see if their is any problems there. i have taken mine apart three times and it still doesnt work.
