First thing is know the battery is any good, connections are good and it's fully charged up. Cranking takes lots of power. All the rest takes very little. If you just move a car/vehicle in a minute every week for example with no time to charge up it would lower the charge on battery not enough time.
Doesn't seem like you'll have access easily for hooking up a charger so perhaps follow all directions on a booster box or jumper cables see if it will at least get to where you can do more about it.
You or brother, who owns this thing? Maybe a good idea to join a motor club that does road calls for things like this and towing if necessary? Cheaper than tickets big time a good one will help you find help to fix this doesn't sound like you have the place to do much of anything - right?

OK but just know there's risk to a donor vehicle so have a willing person's vehicle if that way. ABOUT ALL HAVE CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO USE THEM FOLLOW THAT TO THE LETTER. IF THEY REACT WITH LAST HOOK UP STOP THERE AND SEEK HELP. I have to say that.
IDK what this vehicle is other than a brand nor the whole situation in front of you.
If that does work drive it longer for those moves of course it wastes gas/fuel but so does things like this. I just don't know what to expect for a cheap car most are worth that in parts not running at all so don't expect much from it,

? Check if brake lights work just because. If shift lock is stuck do what you did just don't use park unless you can defeat that lock. It's a dirt cheap car is it even yours to fix anything or just let it work as long as it does and get something else?
So for your initial problem seems fixed so if you need more will need to know model, year and miles on this thing. Please say if you are up to fixing anything we can help and skip details unless you think you can and have some tools and a place?
