1999 Toyota Camry: Key Will Not Come Out Of Ignition?

Car is driving properly,but at park position the key will not come out of Ignition Switch.The Key Actually will not Turn completely Towards Turn OFF position.

Also in this cases its seen that you will be able to move shifter to any gear without stepping on brake first.

So first thing to be tried in this cases is ,Turn the key to as far as it will go remove the negative battery cable then see if the key will release and come out?
If the Key comes out by this procedure then reinsert the key in the ignition and see if its able to start the car and is easily coming out of ignition.But if its again getting stuck up in the ignition then yes there is problem.Many others too have noticed this same type of problem.

The problem is in the shift lock solenoid/ECU mechanism inside the shifter console. What is happening is when you go to the Park position the lever is not engaging and telling the shift lock solenoid computer to turn the power off to the shift interlock solenoid for the key. This in turn will not allow the key to remove from the ignition lock cylinder. This is also confirmed by the fact that it is not necessary to push the brake pedal to get it to come out of Park. The locking mechanism for the shift lock solenoid is stuck. The center console and shifter assembly will have to be disassembled and cleaned and inspected. Usually stuff gets spilled down in here and jams the mechanism.
This Possibilities are to be checked and inspected.

This will help.
Thanks.
