You probably either have a piece of linkage that has come loose inside the door or the latch mechanism is stuck halfway between "lock" and "unlock" (fairly common on some vehicles). You will need to remove the driver's seat to make room to work so the driver's door panel can be removed if you cannot open the door from either the inside or the outside.

If you can get the door open, then the door panel should be removed to inspect the linkage and latch mechanism.

SOURCE: transmission won't shift & speed

oooo man i just spent a ton of money trying to figure this problem out. i have a 99 bravada to. let me guess the gauges lite up but the rpm and spedo do not work. also the transmission wont shift while in drive. this is how i fixed mine. on the driver side, open the door there is a fuse box on the side of the dash. it is probly shorted out, even tho the fuses arnt blow it could still not be working. here is what u can to to fix it temporarly. take out the fuses that say dash and ignition, now run a hot wire to the fuse box and touch it to the ignition and dash fuse spots. and while u have both of them connected turn the car on and put it in drive and it should take off in first gear and run how it should. (when u connect the hot wire to those spots the dash should come on, even tho the key isnt on)

Hello
If the keyholes were not used for some time - then the grease in there could turn into stiff mass. Try put some wd40 in the keyholes and try to turn around with a key - watch out so that the key wouldn't break and stay inside the hole. Good luck

SOURCE: CAR IS LOCKED, BATTERY DEAD,

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Sir it's impossible to open the hood from the outside if it's locked. There's no way to enter the door for the battery is dead. It's sad to say that the only option we got is to break the side glass to gain access to the locks. It's the only easiest way though I know it's sound crazy.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Doors wont lock or unlock, trunk wont open and remote wont do any good, fuses ok.


Will the switch on the door lock or unlock the doors, if so check the battery in your remote, it may be dead. Remove the key remote from your keychain and there is a slot in the end of the remote that will open it up so you can gain access to your battery. Pay close attention to the way the battery is installed before removing it. Replace the battery and try the door locks again. If they work, then you have solved the problem. If not, you have an electrical problem that you will have to trace down. From the information you have given, this is all I can tell you without seeing the car for myself.

I wish you luck, I hope this helps you find the problem.

My 2005 ford focus has a red light that just came on. It looks like a lock and now it wont start. What is this?


This is the key security system. Somehow youv'e set it off. Used the wrong key tried to open the door with the alarm on. Opened the door or trunk from the inside after locking it from the outside. If your the real owner of the car it'll be no problem to get it fixed. If you have the correct key lock the doors from the outside with the key and lock it twice ( the doors ( all of them ) should lock). Leave the car alone for a minute, maybe 5. Then unlock the door twice, all the doors should unlock the second time. Enter the car and start it with the key. If you with a remote door lock fob that can work too. If this fails then try a different door or even the trunk. Sometimes the driver doorlock switch wears out or gets ice in it and unlocking a different door or useing the remote can get you going again.

I have a ford focus w reg, my passenger door won't open. I can't lock the doors using remote because it only locks three doors, i have to lock the passenger door manually. but now after locking the...


You will probably need assistance with the repair, but first try this. Spray some spray lubricant like WD40 into the keyhole on the exterior using the tiny straw provided with the lubricant can. Try locking and unlocking manually using your key in the outside key lock and try activating the handle to open the door while you have someone pull in and out on the door. Once it's open, you may need to remove the interior panel to see if something is rusted, worn or bent.

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.
