RRS Cannot remove key from ignition

I'm starting an RRS rebuild on a truck that had a non-airbag incident with a trailer hitch.

It runs and drives fine (not long obviously, cause the radiator is busted and empty) and has no weird warnings.

However, I can't get the key to come out unless the battery is disconnected.

I assume the transmission is recognizing it's in Park cause it starts...am I missing something dumb here?

someone else would be better to chime in, but if it's anything like the discoverys ....there's a wire you can unplug on the back of the ignition switch that will disable the gizmo that holds the key in...it's there to keep you from pulling out the key while you are driving.....and you know how you love to do THAT ...lol
