How do I get my key to unlock my door when it just worked 15 minutes ago and now it wont?

I got out of my car when I got home from work, i hit the door lock on the door, I got out and shut the door. It's then that I remembered that I needed to get the stuff out of the back seat. I turned to unlock my door and the key won't work. I do not have a popper for it. What do I do?

Try moving the key in and out slightly to see if your tumbler is stuck
while turning the key also if you have some wd40 spray some into the key slot

SOURCE: remote car key not working to unlock car. it does

Most likely the remote is the culprit.It sending a signal and the body control module is receiving it so that eliminates the remainder of the system.If you have two remotes then try the other one.If not, you can go to your nearest dealership and they have a remote checker.They can set the remote on it and push the buttons and it will light up if all the buttons are working on your remote.Hope this information helps,

Usually you will need to disconnect battery, wait 5 minutes, reconnect battery, turn vehicle to on position but do not try starting. Wait 15 minutes with key on. Turn off vehicle, wait one minute. Lock door, unlock door. Try starting.

I changed my battery and when i did, the antitheft just started making my lights go on and off, and i try to crank it but its like im not getting power to the engine!

the anti theft is working! try manually locking your doors,then wait 15 minutes,unlock the doors with key, the last door you should lock is drivers. lock all doors from inside but drivers, when you shut drivers door,lock it from outside with the key.leave it alone for about 15 minutes please! when you unlock it with the key, if the alarm goes off, disconnect the battery for 10mins. then start over,just remember to lock the driverside door from outside this time with the key!!!

Neither of our remotes would unlock our doors on our 2003 Silverado Z71 the other day. So we tried by unlocking it with the key. That did'nt work either. Finally, we put the key in the lock and waited for...

TRY Relearning the remotes. to do this get in vehicle with doors closed hold the unlock button down on drivers door while you cut key on and off two or three times you should hear locks cycle and horn chirp. let go of unlock button and hold both lock and unlock button down on one key fob for 15 seconds or so you will see locks cycle move to next remote and do same. then cut key on to exit learn mode. as far as door not unlocking with key this is a problem with lock cylinder most likely.

My key will not unlock my door to 07 impala and keyless entry remote will not work.I have a car door lock ouy tool,but not sure to push or pull

if you have a slim jim (flat meatal with a hook) you are not getting in. the remote wont work because the battery is dead and the key doesnt work because you never use it (am i right?). Well this is what you can do short of calling a lock smith oir triple A. take WD-40 and spray it in the lock hole put the key in the door and work back and foward untilll it opens this could take a long time about 15 patient minutes (**TIP** put a pair of vise grips on the key this will give you a handle to use because your fingers will get tired quick.)

Alarm wont shut off after replacing battery

How long did it take you to replace the battery? If you did a quick switch, try disconnecting it again and leave for 10-15 minutes. Maybe it will reset? Did you replace the battery before it went completely bad? Is this a stock alarm?
