Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Hi, Someone tried to get into my car and damaged all outside locks that I am now, not able to get into the car as well. The car is really old from 1989 but was a reliable car. That is so annoying- just got a new WOF and want to sell the car in about 4 weeks. What do you think is the price to replace the old ones- can I buy old looks from a wrecker or something and find a mechanic to fix it. What will be the price for new ones? I am a poor student:-(

You can get them from a wrecker if your lucky changing your locks is prety easy but the only problem that you have then is the ignition key will be different from the doors.
If you go to your local dealer with your chassis code they can order the door lock fittng to your key's it wo'nt be that expensive i think

I own a 2005 chevy malibu,when its really cold out the back doors wont shut and lock

Sounds like someone might have used some kind of thick grease to try and lube them at some point. You might try some CRC contact cleaner, or other spray solvent that will not hurt your plastic door panel parts, and try and get all of the old grease out of the latches. Then use something like a spray white lithium to lubricate them.

Hi 1997 Nissan pathfinder rear door's locked, won't open from in and outside... probably child safety thing.. do you know how to open it?

Unlock all doors with the key or the key fob. Manually push down and pull up on the one door lock giving trouble. Leave it in the unlocked position and try again both with the inside handle and the outside on. If no go, you will need to get into the door..or take the problem to an expert..this will be cheaper than ripping into the door card etc. a locksmith may also know a trick or two about getting in without damage.
Could you please get back to us with the solution to the problem as this may help someone in the future.

Nissan pathfinder problems

Check childproof lock if you can open it from the inside, but usually the connection between the handle and the lock for the outside door handle breaks.
if you can't open the door using either inside or outside door handles, go to a locksmith, auto electrician or a Nissan dealer or risk severely damaging the interior door panelling trying to do this yourself...
Please get back to us with the solution you found worked as it may help someone else in the future, thanks.

My Peugeot 307 is locked. The key won't go into the manual lock. Remote central locking won't work either. Changed the battery in the key but made no difference. Any advice?

I only once could not enter my car. After half an hour I found out the licence plate had been changed. Just a few seconds later I discovered my car only 10 meters away. I had tried to "break in" to another, but almost he same car as mine.
If it is really your car. Check if not someone else tried to force the lock and damaged it.

Im a girl and no nothing about cars. i have a 95 olds cutlass supreme. both of the front doors will not open from the outside, yet work fine from the inside. the the locks work fine to. any ideas

It is not really normal on front doors, but when the door is open, if you have a look at the latch on the door you may see a little lever. This is called a kiddy lock, well it is here in NZ, it prevents the door being opened from the inside accidentally by fidgeting little hands. Try moving the lever to its opposite position.

I changed the ignition cylinder and the theft system. will not let the car stay started how to fix the problem ..

hi the problem you are having is due to the fact that the new key is not programed to your cars immobiliser so if your new key is the same as your old one you need to get it programmed by main dealers, inside the old key their will be a little glass tube that has the chip in that the imobiliser picks up allowing the car to start,

try holding your old key really close to the ignition then start your car and see if it keeps running if it does you have 2 options. either get you new key programmed or get someone who knows about electrics for cars and get them to take your old key apart and remove the chip for imobiliser and then they can glue this where the imobiliser is, this means the cover has to come off the steering wheel and the chip needs gluing to the imobiliser that surrounds the ignition barrel, dont try this yourself as you can damage the chip by forcing it out of the key and it is made of thin glass so is easy to damage your best option would be to get your new key programmed

I used a slim jim and now my door won't open from the outside.

Open up the door panel and put the control rod back on. that often happens when getting in that way...still cheaper than a locksmith or a window!! (clip is probably in the bottom of the door)
