This happened to me on a short roadtrip and I was nearly out of gas. Put a flathead screwdriver into the key slot and hit it with my palm and turned it, and it worked.
Went back to my usual service station I'd been at earlier that day and they had my keys, and guess what it still locks and unlocks like it did before I messed with it.

Awesome video! Good to know! I never considered how they worked, but it makes complete sense now...
