We were in the Belton Raymore Walmart and sure enough the keys just now were locked in the car. The firemen came out and said he got paid to do just this. Unlock your car. It was done in about 10 minutes of waiting and 2 of letting us in hooray. Thanks Firemen, he went on and so did we.

There really is only one answer to your troubles...you need to call a locksmith, it's gonna cost a few dollars, but it's the best way to get in......or, depending on how busy your police departments are, they have been known, in some locations, to help people get thier keys out.

Good luck, I hope this helps you.

Why won't the door(s) unlock on my 1975 Chevelle Malibu Classic?


Does the passenger door unlock with the key? If it is OK, then the lock mechanism or the linkage has a problem. You will probably need to remove the interior door panel and examine it from that angle.

Why is door locks sticking. All the doors don't lock when the car is placed in drive, and only one or two unlock when unlocking with key fob. What is the problem?


You are not telling me where you live, but here are some ideas.
Door locks have "always been" inside the doors of the car, and as such, cannot be easily lubricated at all.
From the factory, they have no lubrication, are supposed to "just work" for 20 years or so.
I would be highly suspicious that you may live where there is ice and snow, which can cause rust or corrosion inside the doors, and may make your locks stick . Fixing would include taking each door apart and lubricating the mechanisms. That is a big job.
Be blessed.

Key Fob locks and Unlocks drivers side door. Sound chirps. Key Fob will not lock and doors but will unlocks all doors. Door lock inside works for drivers side only. All others door will not lock? Have...


Sounds to me like the vacuum line to your locking/unlocking device in the non properly working doors are your problem. As more than one door is effected I would suggest the line/connection at the vacuum pump under the back seat is a good place to start looking. The vacuum pump is literally underneath the back seat inside a foam 'pillow'. The backseat is locked down by two devices where the floor and the seat meat. push the visable tab in and that should release that side. Easiest done with two ppl, one on either side.

I found out what to do, there is a plastic covering on the door handle. Click that off and the use the key in the key fob to unlock the door. You can lock & unlock it.

I have a a pick-up B-3000 extend cab and the rear door are stuck from the button. How can opens these doors?


  • If it's simply the car door lock that's frozen, try heating your car key with a lighter and inserting it into the lock. The heat from the metal may be enough to thaw the ice and allow you to unlock it. To ensure that the lock will not freeze again, spray it with WD-40.

  • If the entire door is frozen, carefully chip the ice away from the edges with a scraper. Be careful not to scratch the paint of the car. If you cannot chip the ice away, try pouring some windshield washer fluid on the icy areas; windshield washer fluid contains alcohol and this may help melt the ice.

  • Use a blow dryer set on high to melt the surrounding ice.

  • The best way to open a frozen car door and prevent future frustration is to purchase de-icer. Many good brands are available at hardware and auto shops - just be sure the solvent displaces moisture and leaves behind a lubricant. If the lock itself is frozen, spray the product directly into the key hole, wait five seconds and then put in your key and try to turn it. Most of these products have straws that help direct the product out of the can and into small areas, making the de-icing process easy.

    Once the door is open, consider spraying the de-icer along the hinges of the door to keep other parts from freezing. Keep the de-icer in your home or garage where you can easily find it. Do not keep it in your vehicle. Having de-icer in your frozen vehicle won't do you much good.

The front passenger door lock does not pop up, or unlock / lock with either the key fob, or using the key in the drivers door, or the lock / unlock button inside the car


Hi:
You didn't mention the year of your vehicle, but often when the electric door lock solenoid fails, it becomes siezed in place, where it is un-moveable. This causes the condition that you are experiencing. One way to check to see if this is the cause, is to remove the drivers inside door panel and disconnect the door lock solenoid, and verify the manual key lock works ok.

Remote lock for back doors and rear tail gate door


Actually I found a solution. I remove the lock relay form the fuse panel and placed it back in place. I did not replace it. After doing this they worked. I probably need to replace the relay at some point, but for now that solved the problem. It was hard for me to believe that there is a separate relay for the lock and unlock circuit.
