How do I remove the key fob from the ignition switch?

Removing the key from the ignition switch is very easy. First, if your vehicle has an automatic transmission, make sure that it is in PARK. Then, turn your key fob counter-clockwise to the farthest setting, OFF. Then pull the key fob out.

This process is the same whether you have a standard key and ignition switch, or a remote keyless entry (RKE) key fob with the wireless ignition node (WIN).
