    I have a 2011 Hyundai Elantra and my key won't turn back when shutting it off. Key won't come out, the only way to get out is to unhook battery. When I unhook battery it will turn on but again wont turn back all way. Does it have something to do w/ anit theft?

    Don't know.
    Sounds like the gear selector isn't registering properly.
    If the gear selector isn't put back in park then the key will be prevented from turning all the way back
    It will be impossible to take the key out (without disconnecting the battery)

    I wish you luck.

    Yeah, the gear selector can be in park but the car doesn't register it as such
    Then you will have the problem of not being able to remove the key

    But, it is in park ... lol
