I'm not sure what you mean by engine is locked? Can you explain what you are trying to do?

Well its. Complete dead....the lights and everything else goes on, but the motor does not want to turn. It only makes a click sound.

All the symptoms you described are signs of a dead battery. Put a voltmeter across the terminals to verify, if it reads 12.3 volts or lower or is more than 4-5 years old, it's time to swap it out. Any local auto parts store will check it for free.

Contact whoever did the service. Was the oil changed? Did you run the engine with no oil in it & freeze the engine?
