I recently purchased a 99 626 V6 A/T with 125,000 miles on it for my daughter. After driving for a while and then shutting off the car the key will not come out of the ignition. In my preliminary research, I found an article on the web with someone having the same issue and they were able to disconnect the battery for several hours and then the key came out. This has happened several times and each time after leaving the battery disabled the key will eventually come out.
Everything on the car is stock there are zero modifications. I'm a little baffled by this and by the symptoms, it almost seems like a faulty relay somewhere that is heating up and preventing the key from coming out until it cools down or if power is cut to it.
Anyone have any experience with this??
Thanks for any help anyone is able to give.
