Most if not all vehicles have a
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. Or it has
Linear Shift Assembly: If the vehicle is equipped with a column mounted gear shift, it has a linear shift assembly on the steering column. The linear shift assembly has a cable that runs from the linear shift assembly to the ignition lock cylinder case. The purpose of this cable is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The linear shift assembly cable contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
Your best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer ! The fix involves taking the steering column apart an or the floor shifter assembly ! Also electrical test to determine what is the problem !
Can you push it into a heated garage? Maybe shooting some warm air at the doors-even a hair dryer-maybe a garage floor heater that blows hot air. I would suggest a propane torch, but then you might have to get a $2000 paint job! Overkill?
Got this of a forum. It's for the key less cars. Credit goes to the original poster.

I've just reset the warning indicator with one try only
2008-2009 Volvos with starter push button on dashboard
The trip odometer must have at least 0.1 mile on it or the light will not reset. Get in vehicle and do not push down on the brake pedal Put the key in the slot and push the starter button once Press and hold down the odometer reset button While doing this, push the starter button again and hold for 2 seconds Keep the odometer reset button held in and watch the instrument cluster for the general warning indicator (I) to illuminate. When this happens, release the button. Turn the vehicle off then back on and verify the message is now out.
Disconnect the positive battery terminal for about 10 to 15 seconds, then reconnect it, iy should go off.
But before you do that, make sure the radio isn't the anti- theft type. Look in the owners manual in the glove box under radio to make sure. You will need a code for it. If it is that type, and you disconnect the battery without the code, it will never come back on.
if you take the car to the shop for the same problem (3 times in one year) I believe it is a lemon and they have to buy it back.
it may need to be more times but I think it is 3 in a year. there may be more info if you search for "lemon law" in your state. hope this helps although the issue remains,
