Most cars have a release button under the steering wheel. It will be recessed and hidden under a plastic plug. You would have to use a long screwdriver to stick in the hole and push on the release button. I think the button releases the gear shift so it can be moved the the park position. It's unusual that you could not jump start the vehicle. I have run into a few cars that the battery was so drained that they would not take a jump until the jumper cables were left hooked up for a few minutes with the jumper car running at fast idle. Since the battery went dead, there may be an issue with the GM anti theft system. Sometimes the securitysystem, will prevent the car from starting, even with a new battery. If it happens, you will have to take the car to a dealership to get the car started. More of GM's faltering engineering.
The battery is located bellow the seat, I believe that year is on the right hand side if you are sitting on the bike. It has a plastic cover over it, sorta looks like a bubbled triangle above the exhaust. It has 2 plastic clips that pop in to rubber grommets. I'm not sure on that year, you may need the key to unlock. Some older models also have a phillips (+) screw holding the side covers on.
Be carefull jump starting it with a car, you can damage the bike.
You can also push start the bike. put it in second gear, hold in the clutch with the key in the on position with the emergency switch in on position. Push it to about 5 miles an hour then jump on and let off the clutch. This is a dangerous move for a novice, I recomend you not try this unless you have to. It wont hurt the engine.
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.
a pair of tweezers a small flat head screw driver and persistence along with being careful and if you get irritated or annoyed stop and have a break and come back to it.
Take one of the keys off near it to see which way around the plastic parts go ( not too hard as you dont want the other plastic clips snapping or breaking off ) and see if any little bits of plastic are snapped - if they are you will need replacements so contact asus - if not and they are still in tact then put the 2 plastic hinges together the correct way around and then put them back in place ( you may have to slightly bend the metal clips on the bottom of the keyboard where the plastic bits fit ) which is where the small flat head screw driver comes in handy.
When you are putting the plastic parts together you may need the tweezers or possibly a paif of needle nose pliers ( being very careful as you dont want to snap the plastic clips / hinges )
Once you get the plastic hinges back in / on you can bend the metal parts back slowly and gently so as to hold the plastic bits and then push the key back on.
You should then be able to push the other key back on and that should be it.
If you need any replacement parts then you will have to contact asus.
Removing the keyboard is not nessesarly your best option, the keys have a rubber boot under them, and are held in place/returned into their postion by a plastic spring/hinge. It is possible to carefully prise the "sticky" key from the keyboard and then clean the relevant bits under it with a cotton bud soaked in a suitable cleaning fluid. It is important to take note of the position of the plastic hinge in the event that you need to put it back together. To refit the "key", position it in it's place on the keyboard and press down firmly, it should click into place
