Key will not release

2013 Subaru Impreza

Key will not release when we shut the engine off. We have already troubleshot several steps. Brake is applied, transmission firmly in park, pushing key inward while turning engine off. Engine shuts off but will not complete cycle so that it can be removed.

Hi don, is the steering wheel locked? Make sure that is can turn a full 360.

If it has a locking steering column, the wheel may be turned too far. Turn the key while jerking the steering wheel back and forth fractionally.

Included with the above recommendations, I depress the brake pedal while removing the key. This might help.

I had this issue with my 2016 Impreza. After pulling apart the center console, I figured out what was causing my issue.

To move the shift knob the driver needs to squeeze in the button on the front (blue circle in the picture). This lifts up a rod through the knob (red line in picture) . with the rod up the shift knob can be moved into gear. The rod also presses a button when in park, releasing the key. My issues was the rod was not dropping all the way down and activating the switch. I pulled the rod out and put some light grease on it, hasn’t been a problem since. It was not to much work to get the rod out but I don’t remember exactly how.
