    Default Stuck key

    So my battery is fully charged and my key is stuck!!! The shift selector does click with pushing the brake. I also have constant power to my ignition solenoid! Does the solenoid open under power or under no power? I have swapped relays around an various things! The one thing i noticed was the r8 solenoid does get pretty warm!! Any suggestions or ideas wud be greatly appreciated!

    In my case, it was a brass roll pin in the shifter stalk that had pushed to the right and wasn't engaging the little levers that unlock the key cylinder. Not bad to fix. Pop the console panel off, start taking the shifter apart, and it's there. I have a thread on g8board about it.
