Hello, thank you for writing in. We need to determine if the key is getting stuck in the ignition cylinder, or if the shifter is not registering as being in park. First, make sure nothing is stuck in the way of the shifter. You may also want to check the bottom of the transmission where the shifter connects to the transmission. Make sure it is going all the way into park. If the key is to blame, you will want to make sure the key is not damaged, and possible lubricate the ignition cylinder. The intricate cylinders can get dirty and dusty, as well as become damaged over time. Only further inspection will tell.
