GM had that problem with some models about 10 years ago. It required replacing the ignition switch assembly. But I assume yours is a new vehicle. Check with your dealer.

Electrical resistance makes heat...so it seems like your ignition switch has some resistance between circuits inside if it.
Definately a dealer repair under warranty.

Wait a minute...you said the key gets hot after you remove it? The key....gets hot.....after you remove it?
Is it a fob type key, with a battery within?

Still think this is a dealer warranty issue.
