Sounds like the key you have is actually a valet key. The only way to fix the problem is to go to your local dealer and let them make you a key for that particular car. (by VIN#)

Cannot open drivers door of my 1996 honda crv automatic using key or from inside. having to climb over from passenger side to drive and get out again.


Sue we arn't talking keyless entrey here .
Then if the key works in the other locks it must be good not worn out .
Witch leaves the lock cylinder on the drivers door or the mechinizam that moves the rods inside of the door to lock and unlock it .
Dose the key feel like it fits ok and the lock turn normally .If so that leaves the mechinizam inside the door .
Its not the end of the world likely something popped off or a little plastic clip broke that holds the rod in place .
The door needs to be taken apart from the inside witch means it needs to be open to repair .Its like a caught 22 can't fix it unless its open but can't open it .
There are ways slim jim or the old coat hanger way if you can roll the window down think about it do a little reserach it can be opened with out distroying the door

Ford fiesta ajar light stays on and central lock not working


The central locking will not work when a door is open. find the door which is ajar and fix the door switch. Could be a stuck switch (either open or shut) May just need a whack with a soft faced hammer on the door frame. Don't hit it too hard you could dent the panels.

Does any one know why the drivers door won't lock


The power door lock solenoid/mechanism may be bad. A bad solenoid would not keep the door from being locked with the key.

How do you unlock the car door of 1996 jaguar xj6 if the battery is dead? tried opening with the key manually; lock does not pop all the way up; only partially; therefore it remains locked


Please consider the following...
15 year old car.
Normally uses remote unlock (key remains unused).

Possible solution, open keyhole cover by particially inserting key. Place WD-40 or other silicone spray lube in the key hole (lots). Operate the key several times... eventually, it will clean the unused parts and open the door.
