Start with oil designed for locks first. Tumblers may need lubrication

Hi, I have 07 DTS. When I tried to start, battery completely dead . Now key will not come out of ignition. Do you are telling me that since you don't know you have dead battery until you try it, now both issues. And can't get into trunk ??
