Possibly crawl under car and dissconnect the shifter and manually move the selector on the trans out of Park Position. Normally the locking feature is in the steering column.. which you can also take apart to release this feature.
if ou do not have the key, look at the replacement lock there'll be a tab which recesses when the key is turned to acc or on position. It is that tab which prevents you from removing lock cylinder it has to be forced into a recessed position or drilled to where the cylinder can removed. If u do then locate tab turn key to acc or on and push tab to recessed position and remove cylinder.
Please dont think Im talking down to you when I ask this, but did you try turning the steering wheel? If the steering wheel is got tension on it ie against a curb, etc then the key wont turn in the cylinder. If that isnt the case then if you have the inclination you can try taking the steering column apart and replacing the ignition switch, or get it towed to your mechanic...
There is a cam located on the linkage that gets out of poisition. U have to remove the center console cover and look on the right side of the shifter towards the front, it is located with a white plastic piece.
i had the same problem on my 99 malibu.i called a locksmith and he came out and tapped the key with a small hammer.he said that sometimes the wafers will get stuck in the up position if the wrong key or a new key is inserted into the ignition.after a few sharp raps the ignition turned,but since i had him there i had it replaced.he said lubricating it would work.
