98 Dodge Stratus Ignition key - cant remove

Can't remove the ignition key from a 98 Dodge Stratus. We were installing a radio, and had disconnected some fuses etc. Now the ignition key won't come out of the switch.

Is it most likely just that the ignition switch is bad? Or is there an electrical component to the key removal that we somehow disrupted?

Thanks in advance

Can you still turn the steering wheel or is it locked? Did you replace all the fuses you pulled out? There is a solenoid that locks the steering wheel, but not sure if it would prevent key removal. Move the steering wheel from side to side while turning the ignition switch to Lock.
