Unhappy Dead car Battery lockout.

I just recently brought a 2016 6 cyl Dodge Durango AWD.
I had left the car in my garage for about 7 to 9 days. The car battery went completely dead on me. I mean even the dome light won't come on. The problem is I'm parked in head first and the front wheels are slightly turned. I can't put it in natural to straighten out the front wheels without the car running. I can't push it out, (I'm trapped in PARK! ) without damaging it. I have a key in my remote but I can't find any information on where to insert this key to get the car out of park. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks
Lenny

All the key does is get you in the Durango, you need to put a charger on your battery to get the battery charged enough to get it in neutral.

Thanks for replying. I guess if I lock my keys in the car and the battery goes dead I'm screwed. Why in the world would Dodge design a car that can't be put in neutral using a key. It doesn't have to start the car, just get it out of park.
I'm sure this would be a simple thing to do.

Our old 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada was the same way, since the age of electronics there's no more manual lock outs.
