I don't know exact where the shifter is but try grabbing on to the stearing wheel and crank it to the right or the left until it locks into place then the key should come out.

Why does 1996 Mercury Tracer's Ignition Switch lock-up and release only when shifter is removed from park position and replaced?

The ignition switch on a 1996 Mercury Tracer might lock up and release only when the shifter is removed from park and then put in the park position again because the sensor is getting worn. This sensor lets the ignition know that the car is in park and it is safe to remove the key. Check the shift position sensor.

When your transmission is in park, it has a key release switch that can get corroded over time. I cleaned mine on my older Audi. You might be able to do that on yours. If it is intermittent, run the lever from park to neutral, then back to park. Turn the key to start, but do not start the car. turn the key back to the off position. It should then pull out.
