buick regal ignition locking

I am having a problem with the ignition not letting me turn the key to the position to where I can remove it. It will go to the off position but not all the way back. If I wiggle it, I finally hear a click then I can back it off. I know there is some kind of lock that wont let the key be removed if the transmissiion is not in park. Any other reason?
Anyone had this problem?

You probably need to replace the ignition lock cylinder, as the trouble progresses you will not be able to turn the engine off, common trouble with GM vehicles.

could be the cyl. but i'm thinking interlock.....most are adjustable or some are electrical...still adjustable but the soleniod could be weak...haven't looked into what set up you have but i would think trying an adjustment would be a good start before you get into any costs
