Question about Cars & Trucks
Some cars have the tools under the hood of car, the lug wrench will lower the tire, afterward make sure you crank the thing back up so your not driving down the road hearing a lot of metal banging or damage something underneath the car.

Sounds like a truck. Either a fold up in the spare tire tool kit. Possibly against back wall. Behind back seats. Are usual locations.

I had the same problem with my 99 Grand Caravan SE and found this solution on a different site. It worked immediately. I used my hip to take the weight off the tire by laying under it sideways (because I don't have a third hand or a helper). Below is a cut/paste from the other site. Good luck!
There is a safety catch on the plastic wench bracket for the dog bone.
Here is how to fix it:
The tire will lower about 2 inches then stop. Lower the cable another couple of inches. Lie on your back under the tire and lift weight off the cable. With your third hand (get a helper - I used one hand to lift the tire) reach up and over the tire to the wench down tube. You will feel a wire connected to a square piece of metal. Pull on that metal piece, it should pop back for you releasing the tire.(You may have to pull up-and-out if it has a little rust on it.)
While you have the tire down, clean up the mechanism and apply some grease.
PS Make sure the spare has 60lbs of air before using it.

along with the jack and the tire iron, there should be another metal rod that will have sort of a square, hex, or star shape on one end (this may also be part of the tire iron). with the trunk open, look along the top edge of the bumper and you should see a hole that you insert the rod into and then crank it to lower the tire out from under the car

It's most likely all rusted real nicely. Get the tire down and leave it at home or come up with a way to lock it in the bed.
