If you have a AAA card some of them have a battery service,(AAA in San Francisco has them) And they have batteries in stock and will come out to your location and install for you, If you don't have AAA any tow truck driver should be able to move you car back far enough to get to the battery.
Look in your owners manual to see if there is a manual procedure to release the shift lever when it is stuck in park. Often there is.
how dare you suggest READING the owners manual!!! eight years at a dealership as a tech and my service Mgr. cringes if we say that to a customer. I like the way you think. Educated consumers are the least profitable.
You can use the little key that slides out of your smart key, and insert it in the little slot next to the gear shift in the center console. You will then be able to shift to Neutral.
