Go underneath the car at the bottom of the steering wheel column is where the linkage attached to the transmission lock rod, there is a round collar , turn the collar by hand that should disengage the key lock.

You should be able to reach this without jacking the car up. It's on the fire wall side before the rag joint. The plate will,pivot clockwise or counter clockwise.
