    The reason that I have not tried this solution is because it has been to COLD to work outside. Today it is 10 with a high of about 23. Next week it is going to warm up to the high 30's. I an going to try this solution at that time and I will let you know if it works.

    Thanks for your help.

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.

Key comes out of iginition whit out being in the off position

Bad lock. Before you replace it try this. With the red tube attached, spray a SMALL amount of WD-40 or Lock De-Icer inside the key hole. Work the key back and forth in the OFF position and see if that helps. DO NOT spray a bunch into the key hole. I love/hate WD-40 . . . .

Rear passenger side wheel won't turn

sounds like you left the handbrake on in very low temperatures and the moisture has frozen the shoes to the brake drum .....can you get vehicle into a garage to warm up?? if not use a can of de,icer and spray the rear of the wheel not the front and hopefully some will enter the drum and release it.Do you have a blowtorch for plumbing ,if so gently try warming the drum up slowly as this can cause the drum to crack if not done right.Have you tried going in reverse ???this often frees a frozen brake especially in conjuction with a spray of de.icer

Windshield de-icer switch does not work.

If you had this done, you paid for it to be done right. Take it back and have it redone.
