I would stop by your local locksmith shop and I am sure for 5 to 10 bucks they could get it open for you without any damage.

How do I reset transmission sensor to get in out of park?

all usa cars starting in 1989 have the park lock out feature
all cars this uses the brake lights,
you never said which of 40 lights on car dont work, so brakes.
most but no all cars, with this BS, has park lockout bypass lever.
useally hidden.
in cars its stated in the operators guide. in the glove box, under how to shift car.

  1. so 2 solutions, fix brake lights
  2. or use the by pass
this is all covered in the factory service manual and on line same.
read BTSI here
transmission case2 here (real FSM covers it all)

there are 2 locks one with the Key lock.
and one is brake lock out.
if you drop the cable lock and its still locked, then its the brake side failing. (or the converse)
one way prevents a 2year old kid from moving car, running.
other from same , keys not in car parked.
i once saw a kid do that, and put a new truck and boat , all underwater
i saved the kid. others on my tail, same.
I dont have a operators guide, you should get it and read
it , an avoid, getting stranded.
I have the manual trans car, and have a clutch switch bypass plug
in my glove box. just for when it fails, deep in the woods.
in your case learn how to move car, no matter what. and
how to bypass these parts below, its not hard. at all.

I bought a 92 grand prix and it has a combination lock on the glove box, how do I find out the combination?

Usually the owner never changed the factory combo (#000). I had no such luck and had to pry the latch and manually open the catch with a piece of thin metal. then I took the lock out and looked for a spaced cog on each tumbler(from the backside). After aligning them in a row, I the rotated all three together up a couple positions to align the combination to it's proper location.

Glove box won't open!

did you check to see if the glove box is locked? On some models when it is locked the handle is in a free moving position.

How do I change the combination code for the glove box if there is not a way how would I find out what the combination is

I assume you know the current combination and can open it. To set the combination to a number code of your choice you must first remove the red plastic guard over the yellow tab next to the combination dials. Push the glove box release lever to the right to open the glove box. To change the combination:
1. With the glovebox open, hold the release to the right and slide the yellow tab up. This locks the release open and permits you to reset the code.
2.After resetting the code, write it down in case you forget it.
3. Slide the yellow tab down and the release will return to the closed position.
4. Close the glove box and move the dials off the code you set to lock it.
This is all from the 89 Pontiac Owners Manual. Good luck, hope it works.

Glove box combination lost

It can be pretty easy to do.
You'll need a bright flash light and a small flat head screw driver.
Turn on your flash light and shine it directly onto the dials, take your small screw driver and push the dial to one side or the other, usally push it to the left. 
Yes, you won't have a lot of room to move it, but you should have just enough to see a line, or a groove. If you don't see a groove turn the dial to another number until you are able to see a line, or groove.
When you see a groove you are on the correct number, then do the same to the other ones, then push the button to open it up.
Example. (0)(0)(0)     (0)(2)-(0)     (1)-(2)-(0)     (1)-(2)-(3)-
Good luck.

No trick, it is most likely locked, use a putty knife an pry it open carefully near the center where the latch is, it will pop open
