There is a truck release somewhere. Take the back seat out, sometimes they have one under there, or then take the back seat back off, it may even be there, and if not it is in the trunk and you should be able to find it with the back of the seat off.

Maybe trickle charge your battery through the cigarette lighter enough to get the truck to unlocked. Might have to turn on the key to activate the lighter socket. I hope this helps.
