Man, I can say, it su(ks to be you..I can't fathom why they wouldn't put a key lock in the door. But here's what you have to do.( I don't know what Paula is talking about?) You have to remove the drivers seat to be able to remove the door panel. the panel HAS to come off to get access to the door latch. This is where the problem is. Most likely the latch has to be replaced. But you could have other parts in there that have to be replaced. Once you get the panel off, look inside the door(have a good bright flash light). Since the lock works it could be plastic pieces broken. You'll have to reach in and release the latch. there is a rod that goes from the outside handle down to the latch(the rod could be just hanging there). It is held in place by a plastic clip. Push down on the latch part to open the door. If that doesn't work, you have to go to the inside handle. It is a cable. Follow it back to the latch, grab the latch arm and pull it towards the front of the car. It should release the door. If it still won't release and open. Your going to have to cut/grind the latch out. Probably have to replace the door. Seriously bad set up.

Hi,if you can take the door card off then perhaps you can see whats going on from the inside,
or if you know where the pump is that opens the door and swap one of the air line over fom one of the ones that is working to see if that shifts it.
hope you sort it

Testimonial: "Hi Paula thank you for you're answer , I take it you mean the door panel when you say door card , there must be power getting to the door as the button pops up when I press the key but it's as if the dead locks still on , sorry I don't really know what to do about the air lines , I'm really thinking now it might be the plastic bit of the catch ,, the passenger side door has a key hole ,and was told to try and reset alarm by turning the key left and then right and wait till the alarm goes off then press to open the car with the key still in lock , tried that but the alarm didn't even go off ,haha my luck , I'll have a go at taking the panel off and having a look but I'm not really that clued up with them, but thanks again Paula very much appreciated , ?? yours Marty K , an un clued Scotsman haha"

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

Trunk won't open


The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

Have 2008 Dodge Avenger, left key and remote in car, Triple A says they can't unlock it that they think battery in remote went dead and if so, does different lock to whole car and you need security...


Is the remote battery dead? And why can't they unlock the car? It sounds like you got a rookie for unlocking cars! I would call another tow company, then send the bill to AAA. Unlocking the car should have nothing to do with a dead remote. I know this because I have done thousands of lockouts for a wrecker company. If the door locks are on the door their is a tool called an under over that should reach the lock or door handle. If not they can carefully wedge the door and reach them with a rod also to unlock it. Even though it's electric it should open with the manual part for safety reasons.

Theres only 1 way to tell if it will work - try it :)

Here is the procedure to marry a new remote to your truck.

1. Close all doors and then open drivers door and press the UNLOCK
button on drivers door panel while door is open and insert key in ignition.

2. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN (not start) 8 times within 10 seconds, with the
8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming
mode.

3. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote.
Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

4. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote.
Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming.

5. Turn ignition to OFF.
Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.



Both the Escape and LT program the same - the transponder should have the same resistance.


Try it out!!
