Connect it to the battery and put it on boost or start mode then try the key.
It is far better to charge the battery on normal charge mode at least for a good while on the 30 amp setting so there are more cranking amps. Starters can be damaged by not enough starting amps. Alternators can also be damaged by too low batteries as it strains them. I would recommend a good charge first if not that at least leave the 30 amp charge mode connected for a while if you are successful cranking the vehicle on the 100 amp boost mode.
Some automobile manufacturers recommend disconnecting the battery completely to charge it.
Well you may have more than one problem. As far as cranking, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter and trace back to the key switch. The key switch could cause both problems. There is also a neutral safety switch that could cause it not to crank. You could also have a bad ground connection between the engine and body.
Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.
The key will not come out if not in park. Put a volt meter on the neg post below neg cable put the other wire in the cable. keep that connection do not loose it. watch the milliamps pull fuses untill draw drops out. Now you know what circuit is the fault you can put the fuse in and repeate steps with all the items in this circuit. You will find the draw. Keep many fresh cans of patience while doing this.
The gear shift selector is probably "locked you out" because of the fact that there is a Park-Safety solonoid that keeps the car in park unless your foot is depressing the brake so that the gear-shifter cannot come out of park unless a person is trying to move it.
Why that isn't working is probably because the battery on your vehicle is completely 100% dead. If a battery is completely 100% dead, a jump-start is usually not enough to get a vehicle to start because the battery's electrolyte level is so low that it can't actually hold a charge. I recommend you replace the battery at your first convenience, as it will probably alleviate both problems.
