I need to remove inside door panel and replace door cylinder

I have just purchased a '90 Accord, but the previous owner didn't have the key to lock and unlock the door. He only had the ignition key. How do I go about changing the door cylinders so I can secure my car? Also, how can I get the inside door panels off to gain access to the cylinders? I have removed all of the screws I found, but panel still seems to be stuck and I don't want to break it!

You can also go to a locksmith and have them make you a key for the door, less work than replacing the cylinder.

How to program New key switch 2000 oldsmobile silhouette


Key switch ? key fob ? Transmitter Programming ?
If you lose a transmitter, program the old and new transmitter(s) into the remote control door lock receiver's memory. Up to 4 transmitters may be programmed.
Important: Once the remote control door lock receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information, requiring the programming of all transmitters.
Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If more than 1 receiver is being programmed at the same time, it is possible that the same transmitter could be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver.
Perform the following steps in order to program the transmitter:
  1. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
  2. Remove the BCM PRGRM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.
  3. Close all of the doors.
  4. Close the lift gate.
  5. Turn the ignition lock cylinder to ACC.
  6. Turn the ignition lock cylinder to OFF, and then back to ACC within 1 second.
  7. Open and close any vehicle door.
  8. A chime will be heard when the system enters the BCM programming/diagnostic mode.
    Important: After 7 seconds, a chime may be heard confirming successful synchronization. It is necessary to wait approximately 14 seconds for a second chime that will confirm successful programming.
  9. Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds.
  10. Repeat the previous step on each additional transmitter to be programmed.
  11. Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder.
  12. Install the BCM PRGRM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Fuse Block in Wiring Systems.

I lost keys to 77 dodge.if i take the door lock off and take it to a lock Smith Wood it work for the ignition? Key is the same.and if so how do i remove it?


.You need to disassemble the inside door panel. It is held to the door with a couple of screws and several clips on the back side of the panel. The lock is attached to the door with a horseshoe type clip that will slide away from the lock cylinder from inside the door.There will be a rod attached to the cylinder with a metal clip that you will also have to disconnect. It may be easier/cheaper to change the ignition cylinder and have new keys ( supplied with cylinder ) than go to lock smith

2001 honda accord keys were stolen and the thief broke into my car. Do I need to totally rekey or can I just reprogram the transponder and have the doors not work with the old key?


Hello Sophie,

FIRST OFF ...
>> I would ALWAYS choose a LOCKSMITH
over a DEALER regardless of cost (strong opinion).

Very sorry to hear of your violation...
It never feels the same but now you are SAFER with the
knowledge ... you were never actualy safe.

If other than your CAR keys were ALSO taken...
YOU NEED TO FOCUS on those other KEYS
FIRST (particularly house & mail-box)

Truth is...
your car is never ANY safer than the GLASS IN THE Door
(and only we... the owners... care about that GLASS).

Car TRANSPONDER locks are another situation.

If you use a LOCKSMITH it will be cheaper & safer.

I have used eBay to get my new KEY and KEYLESS
entry fobs... AND ... would TRUST a LOCKSMITH worlds
better & longer than I could throw a DEALERSHIP...!!

My niece had her car UNLOCKED and her HIGH-END
sound equipment expertly removed THE NIGHT
following getting her HONDA serviced at
OAKLAND HONDA ...
She nor I FEEL it was a coincidence (opinions)...

Where-as...
LOCKSMITHS trade on their excellent REPUTATION
and do the SAME work for half (or less) the COST.

REMEMBER to ask them the ERASE/OVERWRITE the
old keys & FOBs.

The locksmiths MIGHT know how to RE-KEY your existing cylinders (I think un-necessary)...
Dealers probably (opinon/experience) won't even TRY...

and of course...
NEVER leave anything of value in your car!!

He probably snapped the rod off the latch. You would need to remove the inside door panel and see if the rod is connected between the key cylinder and the latch.

How do i replace a ignition switch for a 1992 mercury sable


The ignition switch on Mercury Sable is integrated into the ignition cylinder. When this switch fails, you may need to purchase a special switch from a Ford dealership if the switch used a wireless transponder.


Instructions for NON Functional Cylinder (Cylinder will Not Turn or No Keys ):
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the steering wheel.
3. Using locking pliers, twist the cylinder cap until it separates from the lock cylinder.
4. Using a 3/8 in. (10mm) diameter drill bit, drill down the middle of the ignition lock key slot approximately 13/4 in. (44mm) until the lock cylinder releases from its breakaway base. Remove the lock cylinder and drill shavings from the lock cylinder housing.
5. Remove the retainer, washer, ignition switch and actuator. Thoroughly clean all drill shavings and other foreign materials from the casting.
6. Inspect the lock cylinder housing for damage from the removal operation. If the housing is damaged, it must be replaced.

To install:
1. Replace the lock cylinder housing, if damaged.
2. Install the actuator and ignition switch.
3. Install the trim and electrical parts.
4. Install the ignition lock cylinder.
5. Install the steering wheel.
6. Connect the negative battery cable, then check the lock cylinder operation.


Instructions for Functional Cylinder ( Cylinder will Turn with Key):
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Turn the lock cylinder key to the RUN position.
3. Using a 1/8 in. (3mm) diameter wire pin or a small drift, depress the lock cylinder retaining pin through the access hole in the upper steering column shroud (under the ignition lock cylinder) while pulling out on the lock cylinder. Remove the lock cylinder from the column.

To install:
1. Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder housing.
2. Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
3. Connect the negative battery cable.


Door Lock:
When a lock cylinder must be replaced, replace both sides as a set to avoid carrying an extra set of keys.
1. Remove the door trim panel and watershield.
2. Remove the clip attaching the lock cylinder rod to the lock cylinder.
3. Pry the lock cylinder out of the slot in the door.


To install:
1. Work the lock cylinder assembly into the outer door panel.
2. Install the cylinder retainer into the slot and push the retainer onto the lock cylinder.
3. Connect the lock cylinder rod to the lock cylinder and install the clip. Lock and unlock the door to check for proper operation.
4. Install the watershield and door trim panel


Hope this helps.

Unable to unlock the driver side door on a 1991 Honda Accord


You likely have a "link rod" that has either broken it's clip, or come unclipped from the lock and handle assembly. It could also be a broken door handle itself. It's very difficult to tell untill you have the door panel off to inspect. First, pull the door panel. Should be one screw in the inside door handle (#2 phillips), and 1 or 2 (can't remember) in the inside of the hand grab (also #2 phillips). To get the door latch and lock assembly off the door panel, after removing the screw push the assembly forward (towards the front of the car) and pull outward lightly on the back of the latch assembly. Once off, you will see two metal link rods with plastic clips on them, one for the door release and one for the lock. To remove the rods from the clips, look for the "open end" of the clip and push it. This will swivel the clip out of the way and the rod will lift out of the hole. About 90 degrees of rotatiojn should be enough, and from what I remember, they will rotate (looking down) counter-clockwide to release the clips After that, it's just door panel trees. If I remember correctly, there are between 8 and 10 of them. Start at the door catch/latch and work your way around. If you have a door panel removal tool, use it. If not, a single, or even better a pair of thin (1 inch wide) putty knives can be used. Flat blade screwdriver is the last resort. Once the door panel is off, check the other ends oif the link rods you just took off. If one isn't connected, bingo. If it is, then remove the door latch from the door frame using a 10mm socket and an extention. I believe there are 3 bolts holding the latch to the door. Check the opperation of the latch off the car using a screwdriver to act as the door striker, and opperate the levers the link rods move by hand. If the latch is bad, replace! the Stick

Drivers door lock cylinder has fallen or been pushed inside door


Take your current key and the new cylinder to a locksmith. The tunmblers will be replaced with ones that will match your key ridges.

You can try do-it-yourself, but it may not be as "strong" as having a smith do it.:
1. Insert your current key into the new cylinder.
2. File-down the tumblers that are sticking out.
3. File them down to the cylinder.

When you get your old cylinder out, put ypour key in it and you will see what I mean.

Hope this helps!

I need to change the lock in my drivers side door


first with the L/F window lowered, remove the door trim. Before disconnecting window switch, raise the window all the way up . Now, look inside the door to where the lock cylinder is. You need to unclip the attached linkage to the lock cylinder. Remove "C" clip, ( careful you don't damage outer door panel ) securing cylinder to door and remove lock.
