SOURCE: Power door locks won't work

You need to have someone or yoursef check the body control module with a compatible scan tool. Thats where the problem you are having resides. It may need a software update or replacement. You can also disconnect the battery for a few minutes, that will cause the BCM to reset and may fix it.

You have to remove the door panel and manually move the lock release rods inside of the door it could prove to be vary difficult. A body shop is the next step if this proves worthless.

You will need to remove the hatch panel, and release it manually. It is a pain in the **** with the hatch closed, but it can be done.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

The driver side door will not lock or unlock with remote control. all other doors and trunk respond well


Does the driver side door lock and unlock when you press the lock/unlock button on the handle?

If it doesn't work inside either, then either the wiring is damaged/shorted, the solenoid may be bad or the lock may be jammed.

If the lock is jammed then it will be difficult to lock and unlock with the key as well.

Any of those three problems will require you to take the door panel off and inspect behind it.

Central Locking does not work


You must reset your remote control in order for the lock/unlock to work properly.

To reset remote you would:
1)Insert Key in Ignition Turn to Position 1(Don't Start the Engine) for about 5 seconds
2)Turn Key Off and HOLD the LOCK button on Remote while pressing the UNLOCK 3 TIMES
3)Release both lock and unlock buttons you are holding
4)All doors should automatically unlock

And exit the door and lock with the Remote.
