The doors - or at least the driver's door, should open with the key. Now that I have told you what you already know, I will say your best bet is to call a road service company (a towing company can help you... they usually do road service or they recommend somebody). A "lockout" is about $50 during normal working hours, $75-$100 nights and weekends.

Call a locksmith to get in the car jumper cables have (4) connecting clamps. Two on each end. One red (positive), one black (negative).The battery has (2) "terminals. One marked "-" for negative and "+" for positive. Match the red or positive clamp on one end of the cable with the positive terminal on the vehicle being jumped. match the black or negative clamp on the same end of the cable with the negative terminal on the battery of the vehicle being jumped. Then match both clamps on the opposite end of the cable identically on the battery of the car doing the jumping. start the car doing the jumping (obviously) and let it run for several minutes. Attempt to start the dead car. If it shows signs of life but doesnt start, wait and try again. does start let it run for several minutes to charge the battery. Drive it for at least an hour so that the alternator has a chance to fully charge the batrery.
