Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few thing that can prevent the engine from starting, especially depending on what it's actually doing. It will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on.

If you were unable to turn the key back to the lock position to remove it, the starter now does not engage, and the problems are related, then there is most likely a trans or shift linkage related issue and it isn't seeing that it's in park.

Does the starter not engage now?
