Key fob stuck in ignition

Just replaced the battery in my key fob. I got into my car with the normal key, put the fob in the ignition and now it won't come out. Evidently I need to reprogram, but how can I get the key fob out?

Update (10/20/2017)

I realized my car battery was the issue. It was flatlined.

Left headlight was staying on even with key out.

So that seems to be the main issue.

I was able to get the key fob out after jumping the car.

So just trying to find a solution now for the headlight issue.

May disconnect headlight for now so it doesn't continue to drain battery.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, I had tried this already but it had not worked for me.

I had seen a video showing that.

It would have been great!

Its answer is pretty simple.

Move your car backward and forward again.

Make sure your handle face front. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR WHEN YOUR WHEEL IS TURNED.
