Was the battery dead, then you couldn't get the key out?

I parked it with the keys in it, which is normal for me. When I got in the next morning I noticed the key wasn't in right position and no power. I figured I left in accessory position. That's when I tried to jump it. Battery is good though.

If your key is stuck in the ignition, try turning the steering wheel and at the same time turning the key to remove it. If it is not in the power position, you will not start the vehicle from the key in the ignition. Put on the parking brake, foot on the brake peddle and using some strength, jerk the steering wheel left and right until the key is released.

You will need to get into the cab to get the vehicle started. The steering wheel will at times hold the key in if it is not set right when parking. The key needs to be in the start position to start with a jump start. If you can get inside and release the door locks physically, that is how you get in. Then do the jump start trick. Just like above, turn the wheel left or right at the same time try to twist the key to the release point and pull it out. If you park on an incline with the wheel turned, it may turn back the wheel and hold the key so you have to physically turn the steering wheel to unlock the key.
