Two things to try before taking it to the shop, take the keys battery out and back in, or using a spare key if you have one, probably a dead battery or something in the key...

Why didnt I think of that Anthony?? Dustin- I did try that (well actually put a new battery in the key) and that did not work. I ended up calling a guy to come out and we got thru the trunk but we found out the cars battery was DEAD! I think thats a little crazy that if the car battery dies and your doors are locked you cant get in either with key remote or manually!!! :(
