Tbird ignition switch problem

I had been having an intermittent problem removing the key from the switch, but now it seems to be permanent. I can turn the car off, but not turn the key to the release position. I think it is related to the park transmission cable, but am not sure. In the past I have been able to jiggle the shift handle in the park position, and it would release. Any ideas?

Re: Tbird ignition switch problem

Not sure what year you have, but there's an interlock pin that's released in Park in the column. Sounds like it's loose.
