Have you tried a new battery in the remote as your car may have a built in immobilizer that would operate from the remote, thus without using the lock/unlock the engine would not work

SOURCE: Car Alarm

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

My Chevrolet Tahoe 1999 start then stops ! 2 my


A common issue with the later 90's chevy was an ignition tumbler going bad. So, where you put your key in to start the vehicle--this part needs replaced. One I seen actually stuck in the starting position and burned up the starter before power could be shut off to the vehicle. Lock/Unlock buttons on the door? Try disassembly of switch and cleaning the contacts with electronic parts cleaner, dry and re-assemble. Be sure to use cleaner that is safe for plastics.

When i push the start button on the remote nothing happens


I'm assuming you have a remote to lock/unlock your car with an added button to start the engine.
you need to have the doors in the lock position, then depress the lock button on the remote once then depress and hold the start button until the engine starts.diections should be on the back side of your remote.
hope this helps.
(this is how my GM car remote works)

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.
