You didn't write that you tried the key in the door but I assume you tried that right?

You can pop the tab to release the hood if you have patience, through the grill. Will take alot of finnagling though, I've done it once.

It is your car, right?

Because if the key in the door doesn't work, then I don't know what to tell you. You do have to turn the key to the front of the car to open the door. As in, turn left on the drivers side, and turn right on the passenger side.

I'm so confused that you can't get in to your car. Just, like, what? I've heard of doors jamming, but, freel?

Do you Have a 12v plug in the trunk? you can buy that jump start kit that you use from inside the car and plug it into that.

You could also unhook the amp power and ground and hook jumper cables to them from another car that is not running. That will be enough to allow the fob to work.
