Question about Cars & Trucks
I suggest you call a locksmith and have a key made. Even if you were to hotwire the car, you still have to contend with the steering wheel lock.

Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.

Go to the local parts store, have them check the codes (they will do this for free usually). It will tell you what sensor needs to be checked/replaced. Once the part is replaced, it will clear on its own. They can also reset the code, but it will come back if the trouble persists.

if you can get to the bolts that hold the lock in place from the front and bottom you can open the hood and replace the bad cable then remount the locking bracket
