Make sure the power door lock switch will lock/unlock all doors.

Make sure the key chime for the ignition key operated normally.

Check all fuses and room fuse.

Make sure you can lock/unlock the door with the key.

Try using a spare key fob to lock/unlock the door.

Try reprogramming the key fob.

Then you will have to call a locksmith or towing company to come and unlock the keys from the car. You can try to pry the top of the passenger door open and make a long metal rod to reach inside and hit the unlock button, knob or pull inside door handle open.
