2003 Chevy Malibu ignition wont go into off position Sign In

I have a 2003 Chevy Malibu and for a while I’ve been having a problem with my key getting stuck in the ignition and in the accessory position. The ignition would switch between Accessory and Start and I could start the car but I could not get it to go into the off position nor could I pull the key out. I was able to jiggle it a little and sometimes I would have to shift from park to drive and back into park and it would turn off and the key would come out. Now yesterday nothing I do will let it turn off. I already replaced the ignition lock cylinder and I am having the exact same problem with the new one. Any ideas what this could be?

p.s. Yes I have checked and my car is not under recall

My guess would be a problem with the park lock system. Inspect the park lock cable and also inspect where the park lock cable connects down at the shifter. Make sure the park lock cable is being actuated when the shifter is put into the park position.
