Done the manual swap but now the key is stuck in ignition can still start ect but can’t take it out. I assume it’s to do with the steering lock that was connected to the old auto shifter. Is there anyway to remove this or resolve it

Did you find an explanation and resolution to this problem?

I experienced this on a Auto > Manual swap because I completely removed the shift interlock cable from the ignition housing

It turned out that the cable needs to remain installed for the cylinder to spin freely, so I just tucked the cable under the dash
