Wiggle the shifting lever. If it isn't in all the way in park it won't come out. I have to wiggle it from side to side sometimes!

there is a micro switch that may need adjusting. YouTube has the tutorial for other years but not the 2009. I am having that problem right now. If anyone knows where the micro switch is for that year please let me know, because that should fix it.

I have the same problem with my 2008 Hyundai sonata, and apparently, 19 other consumers have that issue, however Hyundai motor America in fountain valley, California refuses to acknowledge this problem persists...

It just happened to me for the first time since 2006. I finally solved the problem by pushing the key deeper than usual and it started turning immediately... First attempt. I don't know why.

I am having the same problem. I have a 2006 Sonata. It gets stuck in the ACC position and it takes forever to get it out. I’ve noticed, and I haven’t read about anyone else having this issue, but it only happens when the weather is warm. Never happens in the winter. Anyway, I spent $300 because a mechanic told me I needed a new ignition switch. That didn’t change a thing.
