I turn the key and nothing happens. Key is stuck in the ignition as well.

It started out by sounding like the battery was dead. I charged it and tried it. The key got stuck in the ignition, and I put the charger on it overnight. Now, no lights come on in the dash, and no noise at all when ignition is tried. I've tried the key fob, but nothing has happened with that either.

Is the tranny in park? Use a digital multimeter across battery posts. What is the reading?

I don't have a multimeter. If I was an expert I wouldn't be asking these questions now. The car is in park, but I'm wondering if it's in all the way. Would giving it a bit of a push with another car adjust the park position and maybe put it in park properly?
