Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
Key starts car.inside lock/unlock works. Key will not turn to unlock the only key entry drivers door. I have NO remote.
I am having the smae problem starting this week. Key fob has been broken for several months (and on a 2001 Cadillac you HAVE to go to dealer to program a new one.) So I've been using the key-- no problem.
FIrst thing others need to understand. The 2001 Deville has a key entry on the Driver's door ONLY-- not any other door. So you can't just go to anotger door.
Secondly-- I am trying my 'main' key, which admittedly has some wear. But I am also trying my "spare" key which has practically no wear at all-- so this is not an issue of a worn-out key. Both have worked fine in the past.
What happens is that the door lock all of a sudden will not let the key go all the way into the lock. YOu can feel it being stopped for the last 1/8 of an inch or so-- just enough so you can't turn the key in the door lock. Seems like some kind of messed up security feature. But all I know is I cannot get into my car, parked in my garage!

Hi there if i prosume you have had the doors open by the key before then there must be a lot of ware in the key, but most likely the car is new to you in that case the key is just not the key for the other locks. hope this helps regards John
