I had the same problem with the key getting stuck in my 2002 Explorer Sport Trac. It happened just as we were getting ready to take a cross country trip to my dads back in 2012 to pick up some stuff. I had to keep a towel draped over the steering wheel to hide the fact the key was still in the ignition. Good thing Ford has the keypad on the door. Finally, after a week, the key decided to release its grip on the ignition switch. Turns out the key ridges were so worn down from use, that it just got stuck in the switch. I no longer use that key!

FORD: 2006-2007 Fusion
LINCOLN: 2006 Zephyr
MERCURY: 2006-2007 Milan
Some 2006-2007 Fusion, Milan and 2006 Zephyr vehicles built before 9/4/2006 may exhibit a customer concern of the ignition key getting trapped or a shifter slider binding condition. Most of the key trapped conditions are caused due to a binding shifter button which does not allow the pawl to contact the park detect switch.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
