Try bumping your shifter in park towards the end of the throw. Then move the key all the way to ON and back to OFF and see if it comes out.

If it's stuck between off and ACC, then it's a bad lock cylinder. You'll need to replace it.

Sorry bud.

They just wear out over time. Sometimes if you get a key made that's non dealer, they'll get stuck as well.

As far as mods for a 3.8NA, sky's the limit. How technically apt are you?
