Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** hear to help you with your issue. these Toyota doors are very hard to get into , they make them theft resistant, I know that's not what you want to hear right now but it makes things more secure .So no fob, and key will not open any door? does it open the tailgate as some keys are valley keys that just open the doors. if you don't have any extra keys to try then I would suggest calling the automobile club. not being smart it's just that they have a special tool to jimmy the door open enough to get a rod specially designed to open the door without damaging the weather strips and marking up the paint. Unfortunately the days of opening cars with coat hangers is over. unless sometimes you can but in doing so damaging the paint and weather strips. after this I would suggest carrying an extra key in your wallet , your not the first or will be the last to have this problem, myself included .hope this makes your decision easier. If you need any further assistance I will be happy to do so.good luck.
