What you have to do is drill a small hole in the instrument cluster lense and with a small pick or piece of wire or something, pull the needle to the other side of the stopper. It'll work just fine after that. I've done it this way in the past.

I have a 99 chevrolet blazer LS it was running fine the drivers side window rolled down but rolled back up extremely slow when i shut it off it wouldnt re-start the battery was dead so i jumped it and it...

that is one grimlin that is pretty well cornered your ignition switch is command central for all you listed that was not working properly inside the barrel of your ignition are the contact pins that supplies power to everything that requires power that why when you turn ignition off everything shut down so your battery does not die out .i would say that there is a 99% chance that your ignition is shot.

Key got stuck in 99 Olds Intrigue. I cannot turn the car fully off (stuck on "accessory") and cannot turn the car back on either. The car is in park.

if it is a column shift try with your left hand reaching over the sterring wheel and pulling back or up to park position a little higher and with your right hand turning the key. don't know for sure but give it a shot

Sounds like the Altenator has died, you have been running on the battery alone. If you give the battery a good charge, you can go quite a while as long as you turn off as many accesories as possible. good luck
