      The tabs that hold the switch on mine broke off. It slid out of it's slot and would NOT let it come out of park. I discovered the tabs were broken after I took it apart, and it was hanging by it's wires.

      I sat in the car and pushed the switch and discovered it was working fine. As a fix I put a dot of super glue in the slot and put it back in place. In the event it ever breaks, who cares of If I have to snap it to get it out.

      I would have bought a new one, but it was working perfectly. Now that it has been 3 weeks since I fixed it, it comes out of park easier and I have not had any further problems.

      Just my two cents...

      I know this post is old but I have some new info...

      My son just purchased a used 2006 Aveo5 last week with low kms. I found this link after he texted me and told me he couldn't get his key out of the ignition. Thanks very much! I found the GM part number listed in the first thread has been superseded by an new one. The new part number is 94568533. The part runs for about $23 on Rockauto or $50 here in Canada at parts monkey. We are going to have a look at the switch this weekend to see if the tabs are broken and maybe do a quick fix until the parts come in.

      Frankly, I just cut the switch out and spliced the leads together going to it. Problem solved and done in 10 minutes. (after 30 minutes with a digital volt meter) Upon examination of the momentary contact micro switch I wonder why it lasted 11 years! A very cheap switch. This switch controls the key release solenoid in the column, and whats more the car will now shift out of park so long as the brake pedal is depressed, exactly as it should.

      Having the same issue

      I know this is an old thread but this started occurring for me recently after a tow. Shifter works, but key stuck on acc.

      Which wires are the ones that need to be spliced? I tested positive for power at the switch itself and when I disconnected the BTSI switch entirely from the white on the left side of the shifter clip the key was still stuck on acc.

      Here are pictures of the assembly. (2009 LT)
