Symptoms can be a hard to turn key, refusal for the key to turn forward, or the key stuck in the ignition with the car running. 
Other symptoms are the vehicle radio or gauge cluster staying on and the key fob not locking or unlocking the doors due to the ignition switch not returning to the off position.
