99 Oldsmobile Alero Door Locks

My daughter in college has a 99 Oldsmobile Alero. I had some spare keys made incase she gets locked out of it. They all work fine in the ignition to start the car. But none of them will work to open the doors. Is there something special about the key or did they just do a bad job cutting the spares? Thanks.

That's probably just bad spares. try going to a different store to have them cut (hardware stores are a good place to go) or you could go to a gm dealer too.

In my 2002 oldsmobile alero with a 6 cylinder it happens every so often where I try to unlock the door locks with my car remote, my parking lights don;t flash twice and my door locks will not unlock my car...

Hi, try unhooking your Negative battery terminal and leaving it unhooked for about 5 minutes, then reconnect it. This should clear any fault codes that are stored in the computer. It's very possible that your BCM, ( Body Control Module) is failing. Take your car to a Mechanic that you trust... Hope this helps.

On a service parts identification label on the spare tire cover, look for a 3 digit code that starts with M, I.E. MD9 or some such, that will narrow down which transmission you have.
