Question about 1983 GMC K1500
I have a 77 gmc k15 pickup with manual locking hubs. they lock in fine but when you get ready to unlock them they dont want to come out. I put the transmission in neutral but I amd stuck in 4w. I can eventually get it out rocking the truck hard forward and backing then shifting the truck back in nuetral however sometimes it takes awhile.

Rich. There is a vacumn engagement of the front differential. The switch is on the transfer case. There will be a vacumn motor(looks like a curise control unit if you're familiar with them) under the hood with a cable running to the front diff. Make sure it functions when you engage 4wd. Probably does. If not, make sure it is getting vacumn by removing the line. It should **** on your finger when covered. If this all works properly, you could have trouble in the front diff. Don't forget the simple stuff, like CV joints, axle nuts tight, etc. You're driving an 86 so I assume you have a little experience in maintaince. Good luck. TJ

Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.
