Squirt WD40 into key hole and try again. Do not worry it wont affect wiring.
If still bad you have to drill out the bolts holding the keyswitch on, as soon as its off, its not locked. Bikers often have to do this and there are tools and tips you can use to do it with minimum fuss.
My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.
First, try to disable the alarm using the key in the truck lock. If that doesn't work....
You should be able to pull the lock cylinder out of the handle using the key. Insert the key, then gently twist and pull. Once the lock cyl is out, be careful when you remove the key in order to keep the keying blades in the right order. Once out, do whatever you can to knock the remainder of the lock cylinder mechanism loose, use a very narrow screwdriver or the like, and keep going until you can look through the hole with a flashlight and see a slot in a white plastic circular piece. Then use a flat head screwdriver to unlock the door, after the battery has been reconnected.
The parts to fix the lock cylinder are cheap, and well worth replacing. The door handle is held in place by a single bolt, should be a t30 torx. Remove the bolt then work the handle loose.
It will be difficult to reassemble corrrectly without having done it previously but you may be able to find images on the internet to help you.
A lot of people will tell you to hook the good car with the negative on a bolt for ground, I have never had luck with that, never had luck with hooking either car to a bolt, always went right to the battery, hot to hot, neg to neg, If there is no connection, wiggle the cables while turning the key, It should catch. Make sure the donor car is running or you will have 2 dead batteries. Check the water in the dead battery, I have seen them come back to life with just water added. Hope this helps.
deadbolt may very free inside the deadbolt hole... This system is low
torque and a over torque clutch may slip if the dead bolt it's not
completely free inside the deadbolt hole... Also, if you try to open the
door before to unlock it, you may block the deadbolt... take care to
unlock the door before open it. to be sure that the dead lock is ok, you
can turn the manual knob and be sure is turning very very easily.
