OK, got a call from the dealership. They have had the car all day and it's still not done
They say that there are two modules one in the shift console that tells the other one in the steering column that the car is in park and it's ok to release the key. When they disconnect the one in the steering column the key pops out, hmmmmmmmmmmm.
Great I have two parts that aren't talking to one another for some unknown reason...I always had a sneaky feeling my car was a woman.
