Question about 1983 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

83 Z-28 Doors are open but seem to be locked.

Latches on the doors seem to be locked. They will not unlock with key or inside lock/unlock buttons.

    I can try your solution, but both doors are open and cannot be closed due to the position of the locking mechanism. Could both doors have been affected at the same time. Is there some way to get the lock portion that you can see on the door to open up so that it will then close over the latch that it locks on when the door is shut? Both doors are open, but neither will shut. I know this situation sounds dumb, but both doors are open and locked. I have tried to unlock with the key, and the lock/unlock buttons on the inside of the car. No success. This problem is driving me nuts.

    Thank you. David Moran

    Thank you. I held each habdle open and moved both latches with ease. This sounds like something I should have already know - but didn't. You just ended a great deal of frustration for this old dog.
    Once again, thank you. My wife thanks you also.

If you you can get into the car take your door panel off and you should see a little rod that is running from the lock mechanism this is attached by a small plastic clip and a lot of times those clips will fall off you can try to get it to rehook but you will be beter off replacing it with new ones and also while you have the door panel off make sure to lubricate the mechanisms i hope this helps you out

    oh iam so sorry i miss read your question it sounds like the part that the door latches to is out of adjustment you can get the latches to releas by holing the door handle in the open position and using you finger you can move the latch to the open position and try shutting the door again and if the latch closes again just do the same thing and reopen them. and adjust the latch and luricate it with some wd-40 again i apolagize you do not need to remove your door panel for this.

I have a 1999 nissan Altima i can unlock the doors


The 1999 Nissan Altima was designed with three different methods for opening the door locks. The ignition key will unlock all of the doors by inserting the key into the keyhole and twisting it clockwise. You can unlock the doors with the remote control supplied with the vehicle by pressing the left circular button with the symbol of the open padlock on it. Finally, you can unlock the doors from the inside by pressing forward on the armrest lock button, which has a symbol of a key on it.

You most likely have a central locking system that will stay locked until you can unhook the battery. This is sounds like a similar problem I had with my 95 BMW.

How come on a 2002 GMC Denali if you lock your key inside


i would say the theft module saw the door trying to be open without the door lock or fob first, once the door lock button was pushed it shut down, it new doors were trying to be unlocked in a theft manner, once shut down it needs time to reset or needs to see ignition cycle with key and read chip in key, smart system isnt it, good luck.

Keyless remote wont work


try to reprogram the remotes using these instructions..........
i assume for 02 explorer not th 05 frestyle listed (although similar procedure)
Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered and key code programming is not active.
  1. Open the door, then press the driver door lock control switch UNLOCK button.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to ON 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in ON. If the program mode is sucessfully entered the doors will lock and unlock to confirm.
  1. Press any button on a remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock all doors to confirm that the remote transmitter is programmed. All remote transmitters must be programmed within 20 seconds of each other. Up to four remote transmitters can be programmed to the vehicles security module each time programming mode is entered.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Late Build or Locks, Latches and Entry Systems — Early Build in this section.
  1. NOTE: Exiting is acknowledged by locking and unlocking the doors if at least one remote transmitter has been programmed.
    Exiting the programming mode is accomplished if one of the following has occurred:
    • The key transitions to OFF.
    • 20 seconds have passed since entering programming mode or since the last remote transmitter was programmed.
    • Four remote transmitters have been programmed.

Door lock 2004 jetta wagen


If remote locks and unlocks driver door but does not unlock passenger doors,then follow the advice above:
Get in the car using the key to unlock the doors. From the passenger side lock and unlock your doors using the button on the passenger door. Get out and the remote should now unlock all the doors with 2 presses.
Worked perfectly for me after several other suggestions (and dealer) failed.
