Your door lock must be ceased or something; they don't get much use with fobs and keyless entry options at your disposal Perhaps a lock cleaner/lubricant will get it turning again. If you don't think that is the case then give us some more information on what your are experiencing with the door lock?

The other option is to try to release you hood latch externally somehow and charge the battery or call a service (locksmith or towing company) to break into you car.

When you say you can't open with the key either, do you mean the key doesn't turn in the lock?

I had a similar situation. On mine the key hole was stuck and I had to just keep trying at it to loosen it.

It finally did turn, and I could get in.

I've got in it now but now I need to reset the key which I don't know how too do
Do you have any duplicates?
& if you do, are any starting the car?
-
For self programming/adding keys to the car, you’ll need Two already working programmed keys to add keys the PATS system yourself.
-
But if “all” your keys need reprogramming.
Then you’ll need a locksmith or dealer that can reprogram them.

Do you have a “Fob-only key” ?
Or
a key with a metal stem that is used in a physical lock?
-
If you have a Fob-only key.
Replace the battery inside the Fob with fresh new battery.

I got in with the key but I can't lock it or unlock it with the fob and have to put the fob in the slot on the steering column to start it

I can get in it and drive it but I can't use the fob to lock it or drive it without it being in the steering column
