Default Canít remove key

I have a 91 Civic auto, I canít turn key past acc position to remove
it until I hear a click from ignition switch, then it works fine.
sometimes I have to wait only a few seconds, sometimes up to a minute.
Maybe only once every 20-30 times do i not have to wait at all. Seems
the shorter the trip the longer the wait. Was told to replace ignition
switch, I did, but didnít help. Sometimes i have problem with shift
lock and have to push a nail into slot to shift out of park, could
this be related, because when trying to shift I can hear a clicking in
steering column. Does the "shift lock solenoid" have anything to do
with the key release thats not allowing me to remove the key without
waiting? :?:

===================================

If its worse when COLD outside, try this TSB for the adjustment:

It's not for your exact model, but its common to about a billion Hondas.

Amazing. I was going to ask the same question earlier
today! Most be the cold weather some of us are experiencing today
that is causing this.

Thanks for the answer Curly! :-)

The problem is definitely in this area. Replacing the console switch
may be necessary if cable adjustment doesn't do it.
