    The "trans lock" is the dipstick, its a new style that GM stated using back in the late 80s that seals and lock the tube inplace. It is red or pink and you lift the tab to release it, the piece that says trans lock. When it is flat its locked.

    That thing can be a real pain in the ass to get off too. I would flip the lock up and pull on it and if it feels stuck just hit a tad of wd-40 around the edge of it. Mine is a PIA to get off if I haven't pulled it recently.

    It's prob. stuck from not being removed in a while. Unlock by flipping the lever up, pull up on the base of the red lock, not the lever itself, it could break. Sometimes I rock the round base back and forth while pulling. You can try some rust penetrant recomended by Orion above.
    Good luck.
