There is an emergency key for just this situation.

Use it to pry the keyhole cover off the left (driver's) side of the rear bumper. The pry point is at the bottom of the cover. Insert the key, unlock the trunk and lift it open, it's not too heavy.

Open the little door on the left side of the trunk, near the back. It has a gas pump on it. There are 2 tabs inside. One opens the gas cap. The other unlocks the drivers door. Now you can get into the driver's side of the cabin.

Below and forward of the button to release the hood on the left side of the steering wheel, is a manual hood release. Pull it and release the hood.

Now you should be able to open the hood and charge the battery to make everything work again.

I'm afraid you are at the mercy of the dealer on this one my friend! Other than electrical/computer diagnostics there is no service information available to the aftermarket. I am a professional repair technician and I can't even get a parts list for your roof system. You now know WHY the previous owner wanted to sell the car!
