This is really strange, the key should work to manually unlock the driver's door and the tailgate.

You can remove the small corner lights and release the hood latches on each side, but this often breaks the tabs on the corner lights. Search for threads where the hood release cable is broken, that's how people open the hood when the cable breaks.
