what did you replace under the console? there are a few linkage pieces that can cause issues like this for the atx foci... not sure what you drive... but the car has to be firmly in park for the key to come out of the ignition.... safety deal... so if youve knocked linkage out of adjustment... or unhooked something... the car may think its still in gear but it shouldnt start technically if thats the problem... but i'd start there...
