2004 Rover Range Rover

Electrical problem
2004 Range Rover V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 99000 miles

My battery is completely dead. I can not open the vehicle with the remote or the key. I believe this was caused when jumping a friend last week. He hooked up the battery cables backward, and I immediately noticed smoke and disconnected the cables. I disconnected the cables (they were connected for about 3 seconds) and didn't notice any issues at the time. My immediate concern is how to get into the vehicle. My second concern is what issues this might have caused.

Try spraying lubricant in keyhole. It may be jammed up from lack of use
