I have this problem right now. when i disconnect the battery, it comes right out...but when i connect the battery, i get a long,constant tone whnever the car door is open and key not in the ignition. when i put the key in the ignition, the tone returns to its normal 'door open' or 'headlights on' cycling tone.

Anyone have a picture of this "sensor" I took my console apart, but wasnt sure what i was looking for to clean...

2010 Ford Explorer Key stuck in ignition

I have 2010 Ford Explorer few days ago Key stuck in ignition and did not come out even the car was stopped, gear at parking. For many days I have to lock it with remote but the risk was still there because is Saudi Arabia children may drive my car and may cause an accident.
I searched for solution here and thanks for this forum and youtube videos uploaded I find the solution.
It was very simple, I remove the automatic gear shifter cover, on the right side there is a shifter position switch. I saw a pin came out of it and it was not off even the gear lever was at Parking position. I just pushed the pin inside and the switch start to function. Problem solved and key came out.
If you need more explanation, write me at my email fazal_babar@hotmail.com
