Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Yes, try using the mechanical key to lock and unlock the car. Try it in the drivers door. If that doesn't work, try the passenger or trunk.
As for the brake lights saying on, that is most commonly caused by a bad brake switch which is around 20 bucks and located down by the brake pedal.
Give the key in the door a try and let me know if that works. Also turn the key to the ON position and let me know if the security light is on solid. If it is, don't try to start it, return here and let me know. If the light is off, then try the key in the doors like I suggested.
Let me know how you make out.
