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

hi check your fuses before anything else if they are ok check your wiring in the drivers door as it seems the drivers door actuator is faulty be carfull if you try to see if you can test by by-passing the actuator all the switches need to be connected before you can test as one feeds the other and vise -versa if no live going to the switch and its not a fuse check the wiring loom where it passes through the door to the a-post as opening and closing the door breaks the wires yates210456

Key issue/ mechanical doesn't fit hole


Your car may have had a new ignition switch installed - hence the different key. The FOB may not be programmed properly to lock / unlock. Have you contacted a MB dealer?

Corolla trunk


Wrong keys or wrong car?. lOL
the cable release won't work if the trunk kew was in lock horizontal position. It needs to be vertical when key is removed. More penetrating fluid and try to force key rocking back and forth in and out. Use lots of wd40 or penetrating fluids and repeat. This will work. Also make sure you are using a master key only.

Unable to open the trunk any method. I turned the key to the left and set the lock to security i have learned. How do you take it off this position?


It can only be unlocked with the master key. If you dont have one you will have to go to a Toyota dealer and they can make one for you. Bring proof of ownership tho.

The car is a 2005 Ford Focus ZXW. How do I cancel the child locks for the rear doors? I have looked at the small diagram on the door post, but am unable to find the "keyhole".


It is just a slot not realy a key hole. You could use a small screw driver too. Just look straight into the latch of the door and you will see a little slot, cream colored plastic I believe. Vertical is lock and horizontal is unlock. Try it and see what you can accomplish. I have a rear door that I can't get to lock which I am investigating right now.

How do you find the connection point for the horizontal rod that goes from the inside door handle to the vertical rod (with plastic knob at the top of it) that locks/unlocks the door? The car is a 1998...


The horizontal rod doesn't actually connect to the vertical rod. The horizontal rod connects to the door latch mechanism. The vertical rod also connects to the door latch, but at a different location. If as I'm guessing the horizontal rod has become dis-connected, it's probably because either the connector broke or fell off. If you need any further clarification, please leave a comment and I will try to help.

I HAVE N REG VOLO 850 ESTATE,THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE LOCKING OF THE BOOT FROM THE ALARM KEY FOB.YOU CAN LOCK THE CAR MANUALLY WITH THE KEY,FROM THE DRIVER SIDE DOOR,ALL LOCKS GO DOWN BUT THE BOOT...


Its dirty, rusted or the rivets are coming loose. Open up clean and spray a little oil. If that does not help. Take a hammer and after removing the whole lock resecure the rivets with the hammer.
IT MAY ALSO BE THAT YOUR BATTERY IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH ANYMORE AND SHOULD BE CHECKED.
